Recall on 2009-2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX

By ,

A total of 18,187 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers from the 2009-2010 model years are being recalled in Canada – more specifically units that are registered and operated in areas where road salt is used on the roadways during winter months for extended time periods (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland-Labrador).

Corrosion may occur underneath the fuel tank mounting reinforcement brackets at the weld seam. A small hole in the fuel tank could result in a fuel vapour leak or fuel leak which, in the presence of an ignition source, could produce a fire.

Ford dealers will therefore inspect, and if necessary, repair or replace the fuel tank.
