2013 Ford Explorer Recalls

Fuel Delivery Module Cracks And Leaks Fuel

The fuel delivery module may crack and leak fuel. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Inside Door Handle Does Not Return To Stowed Position

The inside door handles may not return to the proper stowed position when released, due to a faulty return spring in the handle. This can cause the corresponding door to unlatch, especially in a crash. Ford will inspect each inside door handle, and either repair or replace them free of charge to correct the problem.
