Possible fuel tank leaks have prompted Ford to recall 465,000 cars and SUVs. Officials say the fire risk from a fuel tank leak is serious.
The world-wide recall affects the Ford brand’s Fusion, Explorer, Taurus, Flex, Police Utility and Police Interceptor. Also covered are the Lincoln MKS, MKT and MKZ. All the vehicles are from the 2013 model year. Ford says a connector from the fuel tank to the fuel line is the source of the leak. Customers could smell gas or see a leak on the ground. The company says no fires or crashes have been reported because of the problem.
Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module, which includes the connector, free of charge.
Vehicle recalls should be taken seriously and carried out immediately to avoid injury to you or someone else on the road. Contact San Diego Personal Injury Attorneys immediately if you have been unfairly charged for services related to a car recall, or have been hurt as a result of faulty recalled vehicle.
