Ford Issues Three Recalls Affecting Over 100,000 Vehicles

Ford has just issued three recalls in North America affecting over 100,000 vehicles.

The first concerns the 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, Flex, Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT models installed with Ford’s 3.5-liter petrol turbocharged engine, including Ford Police Interceptor sedans.

In total, approximately 88,000 vehicles are affected by an issue where the fuel pump control module could fail, therefore causing the engine not to start or making it stall. Ford dealers will contact those with affected cars and replace the fuel pump control module if necessary.

The second recall affects about 2,500 units of the 2015-2016 Transit with the 3.2-liter diesel. These cars have been fitted with a fuel injection pump which could fail and therefore need to be inspected and repaired at no cost to owners.

Finally is a safety compliance recall for select 2017 Ford Escapes. About 23,000 need updated power window software as some may have systems which close the windows with too much force, increasing the risk of injury.

As always, owners will be notified and repairs will be carried out free of charge.
