Ford Taurus recalls

 

For Models: Ford Taurus

Electrical & Lights, May 29, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

As a result of water intrusion, the license plate lamp assembly may experience corrosion in states where road salt us used to de-ice the roads. This corrosion may result in a short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the license plate lamp assembly to correct this concern. Note: Under program 14R01, Ford will notify owners in non-corrosion states, and, at the customer's request, dealers will replace the license plate lamp assembly.

For Models: Ford Explorer, Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS

Body, Interior & Misc., June 26, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The rear doors on these vehicles are equipped with child safety locks that prevent the doors from being opened from the inside when engaged. As the rear doors are opened and closed, one or both child safety locks may switch from engaged to disengaged without warning. With the child lock disengaged, a door could be opened accidentally, increasing the risk of injury to an unrestrained occupant. Dealers will test the safety locks and replace those not meeting the testing standard.

For Models: Ford Explorer, Ford Flex, Ford Fusion, Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, Lincoln MKT, Lincoln MKZ

Engine, May 31, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fuel delivery module, which is located at the fuel tank, can crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module in the affected vehicles to correct this concern.

Engine, March 27, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

During the manufacturing process, the side seam of the fuel tank may not have been properly sealed and as a result, the fuel tank would be weakened and not perform as expected in the event of a crash. In addition, a fuel leak could develop at any time. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace it as necessary on vehicles included in this recall.
