Common Defects with Lincoln Models

Over the years, there have been numerous problems in all types of Lincoln models including faulty fuel tanks, engine failures, suspension flaws, transmission failures, airbag defects and many others. The 2013 Lincoln MKS sedan, for example, was found to have defects in the engine block heaters and fuel delivery modules, leading to fuel odor, leaks and the risk of fire. Ford eventually recalled 500 of these vehicles after finding that the insulation on the engine block heaters’ 120-volt electrical cords can crack in sub-zero temperatures.

Other Lincoln Recalls

In addition to the above-mentioned defects, the Ford Motor Company has recently issued numerous technical service bulletins and recalls for a number of Lincoln models.

  • In February 2017, the automaker announced the recall of certain 2016-2017 Lincoln MKX vehicles and model-years 2017 Lincoln Continentals because the driver’s frontal airbag may not fully inflate or the airbag cushion may separate from the airbag module which can lead to an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash. The recall began in June and dealers will replace the defective airbags.

  • In October 2016, Ford announced the recall of certain model-year 2017 Lincoln Continentals equipped with high intensity discharge (HID) headlights that may have been built with incorrect lenses. This could adversely affecting the turn signal visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of accidents. Dealers were instructed to inspect the headlights as replace as necessary.

  • Previously, Ford recalled 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrids claiming that the transmission range sensor might malfunction, permitting the vehicles to be shifted out of the “park” position without the driver first applying the brake. This may lead to inadvertent moving of vehicles and cause crashes. To address this defect, dealers were required to update the Powertrain Control Module software.
