NEWS: Faulty door latches prompt Ford to recall 830K vehicles
August 4, 2016 -- Detrot News

AUGUST 2016 -- Ford is recalling nearly 202,000 pickups, SUVs and cars in North America because the automatic transmissions can suddenly downshift to first gear.

The company also said Wednesday that it’s recalling more than 81,000 Explorer SUVs to fix a rear suspension problem.

The transmission recall covers the 2011 and 2012 F-150 and the 2012 Expedition, Mustang and Lincoln Navigator. Ford says a software problem in a speed sensor can force the vehicles into a downshift. The problem has caused three crashes but no injuries.

Dealers will inspect the sensors. If they find no trouble codes, they’ll update software. If trouble codes are present they’ll replace the part that houses the speed sensor.

The Explorer recall covers SUVs and Police Interceptor models in the U.S., Canada and Mexico from 2014 and 2015. Ford says the suspension links could fracture due to poor welds.

The company says in a statement that the problem has caused one crash and an injury.

Dealers will replace the left and right rear suspension toe links and align the rear suspension at no cost to owners.

NEWS: Ford recalling 25,000 vehicles in two new campaigns
Detroit News  @ January 1, 2015

JANUARY 2015 -- Ford Motor Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 25,700 SUVs and crossovers in two separate campaigns, including the latest callback by the industry for ignition switches that could cause air bags to fail.

Both campaigns involve certain 2015 Lincoln MKC compact crossovers. The automaker is not aware of any accidents or injuries in either recall.

Ford is calling back 13,500 2015 Lincoln MKC crossovers to move the pushbutton keyless ignition switch location. The automaker said that because of the switch’s close proximity to other controls, drivers were inadvertantly shutting off the engine while driving. If the engine is shut off while driving, air bags may not inflate as intended.

The ignition recall covers 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles built Aug. 20, 2013 to Sept. 9, 2014 at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant. The recall covers 11,144 vehicles in the United States and its territories, 2,033 in Canada and 397 in Mexico.

Dealers will replace the gearshift module with one that has the pushbutton start in a different location, and they will reprogram the powertrain control module.

Ignition switches have gotten a lot of attention this year. General Motors Co. recalled 2.6 million older cars in February that are linked to 42 deaths because ignition keys could move out of position, causing cars to stall and disabling power steering and air bags. Other automakers have recalled vehicles for other ignition-switch issues.

Separately, Ford is recalling 12,200 2014 Ford Escapes and 2015 Lincoln MKCs for a fuel pump issue. Ford said an issue with the nickel plating on the fuel pump may cause the pump to seize. If it seizes, the SUV may not start or may stall while driving.

Affected vehicles include 2014 Ford Escapes built April 15, 2014 to May 8, 2014 in Louisville and certain 2015 Lincoln MKCs built April 21, 2014 to May 15, 2014 in the same plant.
