2017 Ford Edge, Fusion And Lincoln MKZ Recalled To Replace Torque Converters

Ford has issued a new safety recall in North America for certain units of the Edge, Fusion, and Lincoln MKZ.

The recall affects vehicles powered by the 2.0-liter gasoline engine and equipped with the 6F35 transmissions, whose torque converters may have inadequately welded studs that could detach, leading to a loss of motive power without warning to the driver.

If this happens, the power steering, power brakes, electrical function and vehicle restraint systems will continue to operate, Ford notes, and the ‘park’ function will not be altered.

The models affected by the recall are Edge and Fusion vehicles built at Oakville and Hermosillo from April 25 to June 20, 2017, and from May 4 to June 15, 2017, respectively, as well as Lincoln MKZs made at Hermosillo between May 4 and June 19, 2017.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this condition and will have its dealers replace the torque converters on all 5,914 vehicles in North America, including 5,183 in the US, 32 in federalized territories, 687 in Canada and 12 in Mexico, free of charge.
