Mercury Montego Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on July 7, 2011

In the event of a severe rear impact, a crack may develop at the fuel filler neck connection to the fuel tank. This could result in a fuel leak or illumination of the Check Engine Light. A fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire.

This should be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if the vehicle has been involved in a rear end crash. Please contact your Ford 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.
