Ford Issues Three Safety Recalls In North America For Edge, Expedition, Transit And Lincoln Navigator

Certain Ford vehicles have been included in three safety campaigns conducted by the automaker in North America.

The biggest recall is for the 2015-2017 Transit and affects 293,558 units in the United States and federalized territories, 22,960 in Canada and 2,755 in Mexico.

Built at Kansas between January 17, 2014, and June 15, 2017, the recalled Transits have apparently a problem with the driveshaft flexible coupling that could eventually crack. Should this happen, users will be alerted by the driveline noise and vibration.

Continuing to drive the vehicle could cause complete driveshaft separation, leading to a loss of motive power or unintended movement in the car park without the parking brake engaged. The company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The second recall revolves around certain 2019 Edge SUVs. A total of 366 examples are affected in the United States and 65 in Canada, made on September 18 and 19, 2019, at Oakville. According to Ford, drivers may not be adequately restrained in the event of an accident due to an improperly crimped seatbelt pretensioner anchor, thus increasing the risk of injury or perhaps even death.

Select 2019 Expedition and 2019 Lincoln Navigator SUVs have been included in the third safety campaign. The Fords were assembled on September 5-6, 2019, and the Lincolns on September 6, at Kentucky, and some of them face increased crash and/or injury risk due to the rear toe link fastener that could have not been tightened accordingly during the assembly process. Only 18 vehicles are affected in the United States.

In all three cases, Ford’s technicians will inspect the cars and repair them free of charge.
