Recall 14E028000

Accessory Floor Mats Move And Interfere With Accelerator Pedal

Recall Details

Ford accessory floor mats may interfere with accelerator pedal operation. Dealers will install replacement mats, free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

Accessory floor mats purchased from Ford dealers for use may move and interfere with proper accelerator pedal operation, possibly resulting in a sticking pedal. This may result in unintended vehicle acceleration.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Ford must be performed by a General Motors dealership. Ford began notifying known owners of affected vehicles when the recall was announced, in July 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealers below. 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.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain all weather driver side accessory floor mats sold for use in model year 2006-2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, 2006 Lincoln Zephyr, and 2007-2011 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured November 9, 2007, through October 31, 2010. The affected floor mats may move and possibly interfere with the accelerator pedal.
Consequence
The floor mat could shift such that it could interfere with the accelerator pedal, preventing its return to an idle position, which could result in unintended vehicle speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install new replacement mats, free of charge. The recall began in July 2014. Owners may contact Ford's customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S07. NOTE: Vehicles built after October 31, 2010, while potentially equipped with the same floor mats, are equipped with a Brake Over Accelerator (BOA) feature that prevents simultaneous accelerator and brake application, allowing the vehicle to be safely stopped by pressing firmly and steadily on the brake pedal.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
