Ford Recalls Almost 593,000 Vehicles

Why is Ford recalling close to 593,000 vehicles?

Ford has announced that they are recalling half a million vehicles.  While the reasons for the recalls vary, the overwhelming problem involves the power assist to the steering, making the vehicle more difficult to turn.  This dangerous defect affects Ford Fusions from 2013 to 2015, Lincoln MKZ sedans from the same years, and the 2015 Ford Edge.  The bolts used to fasten the steering system in place are prone to rust, particularly in cold weather climates where the cold winters and salted roads make the automobiles more susceptible to corrosion.  To save money, the recall is limited to states with cold climates, even though a consumer might have purchased a new car in Alabama in anticipation of a move to Massachusetts.  

Two, much smaller recalls have also been issued by Ford.  Approximately 50,000 Fords, including 2014 Ford Focuses, Edges, Escapes, Transit Connects, and 2014-15 Ford Fiestas are being recalled because a stalling problem.  The manufacturer indicated the problem is a faulty fuel pump.  There is also a recall of 22,6000 Lincoln MKZ vehicles because their parking lights are brighter than allowed under federal regulation.

If you purchased a new car with a defect that you have the dealer has been unable to resolve, you should contact a reputable Lemon Law attorney today!
