Ford Motor recalls more than 220,000 Vehicles
Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday announced that it is recalling more than 220,000 vehicles due to an issue with the spring that controls the interior door handles. The company has recently become aware about the issue.
It has been told that automobile giant is recalling 2010-13 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS and Ford Police Interceptor sedans due to the same issue. The company said in a statement that the door could become unlatched in case of a side-impact crash, which it says could increase the risk of injury.
The recall covers over 194,889 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories. It also covers almost 9,948 vehicles in Canada and 108 in Mexico.
Dealers after the recall will be inspecting all the four door handle assemblies. They will check if any repair is needed or could even replace the handles if necessary.
The Dearborn automaker is also recalling16,100 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans for a potential issue with safety belt fasteners that might not have been tightened properly, said sources.
It was found that the safety belt fasteners that are not tightened properly might loosen over time, which may cause them not to function as intended, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
As of now, the company has not come across any accidents or injuries related to either condition. Dealers will tighten the safety belt fasteners as well.
