Lincoln Navigator Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview on April 27, 2016

The automatic transmission may unexpectedly and suddenly shift into first gear, regardless of vehicle speed. This could cause the vehicle to jerk and slow without warning and lock the rear tires causing them to slide without warning. This could result in a loss of vehicle control and injury.

Recalls on your Ford or Lincoln must be performed by a Ford or Lincoln dealership. Ford will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in May, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford or Lincoln dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Ford recall number is 16S19.

The inside door handles are spring loaded, which makes the handles return to their rest position after using them. These springs can break, which can prevent the handles from returning to the closed position. If this happens, the door may come open during an accident.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any problems are noted with the door handles. Please contact your Ford or Lincoln dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
