Ford Motor Corp. recently announced that they’re initiating 3 separate
recalls covering approximately 221,000 vehicles in the United States.
car accidents or injuries have been linked to these
defective autos. However, two under-hood fires have been reported.
The vehicles covered in these
Ford recalls include:
- 2011-2013 Ford Explorer SUVs and Ford Police Interceptor Unity vehicles
- 2013-2015 Lincoln MKT limousine and hearse vehicles
- 2011-2013 Ford F-series Super Duty ambulance vehicles and 2014-2015 ambulance
and emergency vehicles
The recall involving the Ford Explorer vehicles was initiated to correct
a problem where interior door handles can come unhatched during a side-impact
car accident, minimizing the side-impact protection provided to passengers. The Lincoln
recall involves a defective vacuum pump relay that may lead to an under-hood
fire. The F-series ambulance recall addresses a defective exhaust temperature
sensor that gives a false high-temperature reading when it malfunctions.
