Check For Ford Recalls

Ford Recalls: A vehicle or auto part recall is an urgent warning and notification that has been issued by the manufacturing company. Even though Ford’s laboratories and technicians have exhausted many tests on all the vehicles that they introduce and distribute, there are times that unprecedented errors in design can happen that only unveil themselves through real-life situations. Our company is dedicated to its customers and wants to ensure the satisfaction and safety of those who drive Ford automobiles. That being said, when a recall happens, we try our very best to alert those who may be handling a machine with a faulty part.

Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle still needs to be repaired. NHTSA’s new search tool lets you enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years.

BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) — Changan Ford Automobile Co. Ltd., a joint venture between China’s Changan Automobile and American automaker Ford, on Friday started to recall 547,876 vehicles due to safety risk of airbags.

The recall involves 344,872 Mondeo models manufactured between Jan. 4, 2013, and Oct. 11, 2016, and 203,004 Edge models produced between Sept. 4, 2014, and June 9, 2017, the State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement on its website.

Defective airbags were equipped with inflators not containing a desiccant. When the airbags deploy, airbag inflators of the affected vehicles may rupture, spewing out shrapnel and posing risks to drivers and passengers, said the administration.

Step aside, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, there’s a new efficiency champ in town. EPA estimates have officially made the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range-Plus the most efficient electric car on sale in the US today.

This is an accolade that doesn’t get nearly as much attention as electric range or power. The EPA uses a rating called miles per gallon equivalent to show how efficient electric cars and plug-in hybrids are, since they (obviously) don’t drink fossil fuels, or drink them part-time in a plug-in’s case. It’s the distance a car can travel electrically on the amount of energy contained in one gallon of gasoline.

In this area, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric has long been the king, with an EPA-estimated mpge rating of 136 mpge combined. Hyundai, however, has dropped a bigger battery in the electric car for 2020. While that boosts range to 170 miles (up from 124 miles), it drops efficiency to 133 mpge combined, as new motors also increase power from 118 to 134 horsepower.

That’s given the 2020 Model 3 a chance to scoop up the crown, and per the EPA website, it did just that with the latest snapshot of ratings from the electric car. The EPA estimates the Model 3 will return 141 mpge combined. Not only does that best the new Ioniq, but it still takes the title from the outgoing model, too.

If you’re a little lost in the mpge talk, let me make it super simple: The Tesla Model 3 will go an estimated 141 miles on the amount of energy a single gallon of gas contains. That’s, quite frankly, incredible to think about as most sedans will do a few dozen miles per gallon.

Of course, the Ioniq Electric is still a fine choice for those looking to ease into the electric lifestyle — and far more affordable than a Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which starts at just shy of $40,000. The Ioniq Electric starts at $31,245, though that’s 2019 model year pricing. The 2020 model, aside from its battery upgrade and new motors, will get new equipment, too, so the price may increase. Whatever the cost, the car is eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit as well; Tesla’s tax credits are nearly gone.

Ford Recalls 2017

Ford has issued three different new recalls in North America that affect four of its models — including one Lincoln — totaling almost 320,000 vehicles. There have been no reported injuries or accidents related to any of the recalls, and all will be fixed by dealerships.

Of the three recalls, the largest is for one of Ford’s largest vehicles: the Transit van. Ford is recalling 293,558 Transits across the 2015-2017 model years in the US (as well as 22,960 in Canada and 2,744 in Mexico) for an issue with the driveshaft flexible coupling. The coupling can crack as mileage increases, creating noise and vibration in the driveline, which can in turn cause separation of the driveshaft. If that happens there can be a loss of power and unintended movement when the van is in the park, as well as damage to components like fuel lines and brakes. So far, Ford hasn’t received any reports of damage or injury.

This is something for which Ford previously issued a recall in 2017. Ford says that for couplings installed under that recall that have fewer than 40,000 miles on them, there’s nothing to worry about. For Transits that have put more than 40,000 miles on the couplings, Ford will be replacing the coupling, but weirdly that’s being called an “interim repair” to be performed every 40,000 miles until the “final repair” is available. When the “permanent repair parts” become available, dealers will install new front driveshaft sections with mechanical u-joints in place of the existing flexible couplings. No timeline was given for when the permanent fix will be available.

The next recall is for 2019 model-year Edge crossovers, affecting 366 units in the US and 65 in Canada. The driver’s side seatbelt pretensioner may be improperly crimped from the factory, leading to the assembly improperly restraining the occupant in a crash. All the potentially affected Edges were built between Sept. 18-19 of 2019. No accidents or injuries have been reported, and dealers will inspect the part and replace it if necessary.

The smallest of the three recalls are for the Expedition SUV and its Lincoln Navigator sibling. Only 18 units are affected between the two models, all of which were 2019 model years built between Sept. 5-6 of 2019. During assembly, the rear toe link fastener might not have been tightened properly, which could cause it to disconnect while driving and lead to a crash. Ford says that there have been no reports of accidents related to this issue. Dealers will inspect and correctly torque the fasteners, perform a rear toe alignment, and check the rear tires for wear.
