Ford Issues Recall On Fusions and Lincoln MKZ
1.38 million Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZ models made between 2014-2018 are being recalled because the steering wheels can come loose.
The recall comes after officials discovered that the cars have "potentially loose steering wheel bolts that could result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column," Ford said in a statement.
This is on top of a door latch recall that has cost ford more than $600 million dollars.
The latest recall affects 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S., about 62,000 in Canada and about 14,000 in Mexico.
Ford dealers will fix these cars for free. Customers will be notified when they can visit for repairs.
The automaker said it had identified at least two accidents potentially connected to the defect, as well as one injury.
The recall covers the 2014 through 2017 Fusion made at Ford's Flat Rock, Mich. plant from Aug. 6, 2013, through Feb. 29, 2016; the 2014 through 2018 Fusion made at Ford's Hermosillo, Mexico, plant from July 25, 2013, through March 5, 2018; and the 2014 through 2018 Lincoln MKZ made at the Hermosillo, Mexico, plant from July 25, 2013, through March 5, 2018.
