NEWS: Ford issues 6 new recalls covering 101,000 vehicles
Detroit News  @ July 8, 2014

JULY 2014 -- Ford Motor Co. said late Monday it is recalling 101,000 vehicles in six new recall campaigns, bringing the total recalls so far this year by the Dearborn automaker to nearly 3 million vehicles in the United States.

The biggest recall covers 92,000 vehicles in North America, including 2013-2014 models of the Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Ford Police Interceptor, Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT; 2012-2014 Ford Edge; and 2014 Lincoln MKX. All have potential issues with the right-side halfshaft.

Because of faulty assembly, the vehicles may experience “loss of drive function,” Ford said. The Ford said the vehicles could roll away if the gearshift is placed in “park” without the emergency brake being activated.

Ford said dealers will inspect the halfshaft and repair or replace as needed.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

Ford is also recalling 2,100 2014 Ford Escape SUVs for a potential problem with the panorama roof glass that may have an improperly cured bond between the glass and the attaching bracket that could result in noise, water leak or separation of the panel from the vehicle. Dealers will replace the panel if they were built between Oct. 15 and Oct. 22, 2013, at the Louisville Assembly Plant.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

Ford said no crashes or injuries have been reported in any of the new recall campaigns.

The recalls are the latest sign that automakers are boosting recalls because of stricter scrutiny from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Ford recalled 1.19 million vehicles in 16 recall campaigns in the United States in all of 2013. So far this year, Ford says it has issued 19 recalls covering 2.94 million vehicles.

Automakers have recalled nearly 40 million vehicles in the United States this year, an all-time record that shatters the 30.8 million recalled in 2004. General Motors Co. leads the pack with 25.2 million callbacks, also an all-time record.

Other recalls announced Monday by Ford:

197 2014 Ford Fiestas are being called back in North America for a potential issue with the fuel tank. Some fuel tanks may be missing an adhesive layer. Without that adhesive, it may leak fuel and catch fire.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

Two of the recalls involve Ford commercial vehicles:

Ford is recalling 5,264 2011-2014 Ford F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles in North America because electrical junction blocks could short-circuit if driven in areas where salt is spread on roads. Drivers may experience smoke coming from the right front wheel well, a loss of electrical power — or potentially a fire, with or without the engine running. Dealers will replace the block.

Ford is recalling 635 2014 Ford F53 Motorhome Stripped Chassis and F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles in North America for a possible issue with the brake calipers. Some may have been incorrectly machined and could result in a leak between the piston and piston bore, which could result in longer brake pedal travel and increased stopping distances.

Some of the recalls are very minor, but automakers are taking no chances running afoul of NHTSA:.

368 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans are being called back because of a labeling issue with the brake fluid reservoir cap in Puerto Rico. The brake reservoir cap on the affected vehicles does not conform to brake system labeling requirement. The vehicles shipped to Puerto Rico had a European brake reservoir pictogram label, which does not contain the text required by U.S. law.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

The recalls are the most recent by the Dearborn automaker. In May, it announced it was recalling nearly 1.4 million vehicles in four separate recall campaigns, including 1.1 million Ford Escapes, Mercury Mariners and Ford Explorers in North America for power steering problems.

Three of the four recalls came under pressure from U.S. and Canadian auto safety regulators — another sign that government agencies are taking a harder line with automakers in the aftermath of the General Motors Co. recall crisis. Ford opted to recall the vehicles rather than fight regulators.


NEWS:  Ford is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Fiesta vehicles
NEWS -- October 16, 2012

OCTOBER 2012 --  Ford is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Fiesta vehicles, manufactured from November 3, 2009 through September 21, 2012. The vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." The passenger side curtain air bag will not deploy in the event of a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty. Although the side curtain air bag system was designed to suppress the side curtain air bag under this scenario, that information is not explained in the owner's guide for these vehicles as required by FMVSS No.208. An occupant in the right rear seating position will not have coverage from the side curtain air bag in a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty, increasing the risk of injury to the right rear occupant. Ford will notify owners and dealers will reprogram the vehicle's software free of charge so that it no longer suppresses the passenger side curtain air bag when the front passenger seat is empty, and consistent with the description in the owner's guide. The safety recall is expected to begin shortly. Ford's recall campaign number is 12C26. 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 .
