Ford recalls

 

For Models: Ford Edge

Engine, September 4, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles equipped with 2.0L engines are being recalled because the fuel line pulse damper metal housing may crack as a result of an improper manufacturing process. A cracked fuel line pulse damper housing may result in a combination of fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will perform the repairs necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S40.

For Models: Ford Transit Connect

Body, Interior & Misc., July 30, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The wiper arms may not be adequately riveted, resulting in incomplete or inconsistent clearing of the windshield and possible detachment of the wiper arm. If the wiper arm detaches, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the driver and passenger side wiper arm and blade assemblies to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S36.

For Models: Ford Escape

Engine, July 25, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford Escape models equipped with a V6 are being recalled because inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the speed control cable connector could result in a stuck throttle when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost fully depressed. This risk exists regardless of whether or not the speed control (cruise control) is used.

A stuck throttle may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop or slow the vehicle, which could result in a crash. Dealers will correct this concern by increasing the engine cover clearance. Remedy parts are expected to be available in mid-August. Until then, dealers will disconnect the speed control cable as an interim remedy if parts are not available at the time of an owner's service appointment. The Ford recall number is 12S37.

For Models: Ford Escape

Engine, July 18, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles equipped with a 1.6L engine were assembled with an engine compartment fuel line which may split, resulting in a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Owners will be notified and instructed to stop driving their vehicles and contact a Ford or Lincoln dealer to arrange for pick-up of their vehicle. Customers will be provided with a rental vehicle if needed. The dealer will replace the engine compartment fuel line to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S35. 

For Models: Ford Escape

Body, Interior & Misc., July 2, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to mis-positioned carpet padding, the left side trim panel on the center console may be pushed outboard of the intended position. This would reduce the clearance relative to the pedal package. The reduced clearance may result in the driver's foot contacting the side of the brake pedal while transferring the foot from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal. This could increase stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will removed the carpet padding and replace the left-side console trim panel to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S34.

For Models: Ford Windstar

Suspension & Steering, April 30, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles currently registered or originally sold in Virginia are being recalled. Corrosion related fractures of the front subframe may occur. The areas in question are the rear attaching brackets for the front lower control arm and the rear body mount attachments. Failure in either area could result in significant loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the areas in question and perform the necessary repairs. The Ford recall number is 11S16.

For Models: Ford Expedition, Ford F-150, Ford Mustang, Lincoln Navigator

Electrical & Lights, April 30, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles may have been assembled with a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear. If this condition exists, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear and/or if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle's not signaling it is in reverse. Dealers will inspect and replace the transmission range sensor as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C23.

For Models: Ford Windstar

Suspension & Steering, April 30, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles currently registered or originally sold in Virginia are being recalled. Over time, corrosion can weaken the rear axle making it susceptible to torsional stress. This can lead to cracks, increasing the risk of complete fracture of the rear axle. A fractured axle can affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear axle and install rear axle reinforcement brackets or replace the axle as necessary. The Ford recall number is 10S13.

 

For Models: Ford F-150

Body, Interior & Misc., April 30, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Incorrect software for the occupant classification system module (OCSM) may have been installed on certain vehicles. Under certain driving conditions, the OCSM may misclassify the passenger seat occupant such that the passenger side airbag does not deploy when it should, does not deploy as intended, or deploys when it should not. Failure in any of these ways will increase the risk of injury to the passenger seat occupant. Dealers will replace the OCSM to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S31.

For Models: Chevrolet Express 1500, Ford Transit Connect, GMC Savana 1500

Body, Interior & Misc., April 13, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles, fitted with a specific Braun wheelchair lift, has a roll stop latch on the outer barrier of the wheelchair lift that may become bent or misaligned over time and with frequent use. Main Mobility is working with Braun to notify owners and Braun dealers will repair the lift as necessary to correct this concern. This recall only pertains to vehicles altered by Main Mobility. General Motors and Ford are NOT involved in this recall.
