Another Recall for 2013 Ford Fusion, Second in a Week's Time!

Several thousand owners of the 2013 Ford Fusion in the States will soon receive a second recall notice from the Blue Oval, the second one in a week.

The first came on November 30 when Ford announced that 15,833 Fusion sedans powered by 1.6-liter EcoBoost engines were prone to overheating, which could cause a fire.

Now, the second recall concerns 19,106 Fusion models regardless of engine, and manufactured from February 3, 2012, through October 20, 2012, to fix defective headlamps.

“The affected vehicles may not have had the low beam headlamp projector coating properly cured during its manufacturing process,” said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) in a filing on its website.

According to the NHTSA, over time, this could lead the headlight to become hazy through operation, “reducing the brightness of the low-beam lamp”.

The solution to the problem is to replace the cars’ headlamps, which, naturally, will be done by Ford dealers free of charge. Ford said the recall is expected to begin on December 10, 2012.
