Body, Interior & Misc., September 26, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The Restraint Control Module (RCM) is the "brains" behind the airbag system. Portions of the module are coated to help prevent moisture intrusion. The coating can crack and when exposed to humidity the printed circuit board may short circuit. This could cause one or more of the airbag system components not to function as expected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Replacement parts are currently not available, a second notification letter will be sent when they are and dealers will perform the necessary repairs.

For Models: Ford C-Max, Ford Focus

Suspension & Steering, August 22, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The steering gear transmits the motion from the steering wheel to the front wheels. These vehicles are being recalled because the steering gear may have been incorrectly assembled. As a result vehicle steering could be impaired, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gear in the affected vehicles to correct this concern.

For Models: Ford Edge, Ford Flex, Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, Lincoln MKT, Lincoln MKX

Drive Train, July 2, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention clip may not have been properly installed. As a result, without prior warning the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving. This would result in loss of engine power to the drive wheels. Dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles equipped with a 2.0L engine are being recalled because a crack may develop in the fuel line pulse damper housing. This could result in a fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel line with one that does not include a damper. This recall supersedes NHTSA recall #12V438000. All vehicles repaired under the previous recall need to have the current remedy applied.

1.6L engines can develop a localized overheating condition that can result in a cracked cylinder head and engine oil leak. Leaking engine oil may contact a hot surface increasing the risk of an under hood fire. Dealers will modify the engine shielding, cooling and control systems to correct this concern. For some vehicles, this recall is in addition to a previous recall, they will need to be reinspected and have the new remedy completed.
