Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles manufactured June 14, 2016, to September 23, 2016 and equipped with high intensity discharge (HID) headlights. The headlights may have been built with incorrect lenses, adversely affecting the turn signal visibility as well as not being properly marked. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."
Consequence
Reduced turn signal visibility to other drivers and pedestrians can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the headlights, replacing them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C15.
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.
