After the company Trek has recently recalled to service approximately one million bicycles from the United States and from Canada, another giant of the auto industry makes a similar move. Ford recalls nearly 600k vehicles in North America, and it seems that this time Ford Motor Co has in mind to fix more than one issue with the cars which have been recalled. The problems of the cars are about their steering gear or the bolts used for motor attachment. The not proper functioning of such pieces might lead to terrible results, like fatal accidents even in the moments where everything seems ok.
Ford recalls nearly 600k vehicles in North America, and this is some news to get you curious about the subject, since the motor industry giant is one of the most popular companies in the area. If you are the owner of a Ford Motor Co vehicle, then you must know that the cars which have been recalled for service are models of the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, produced between 2013 and 2015. In addition to these two models, the motor industry giant has also recalled the Ford Edge cars which have been produced in 2015. The are the models that are suspected to represent danger to their owner. The main issue of these vehicles seem to be, according to officials talking on behalf of the Ford Motor Co, a problem with the steering gear motor attachment bolts. These pieces might crack and cause unwanted consequences, mainly because of the corrosion.
Such a problem might occur when you are driving your vehicle and if this happens, the steering gear will go back to default, or manual. This means you will need to drive like a real driver. And if this happens, you might be put to a test that might be impossible to pass. Meaning that you will have to pay more attention and show more driving skill if you are to steer, and that especially at a low speed. And this does not only mean that you will drive at a lower speed if the steering gear motor attachment bolts were to crack due to corrosion, but more importantly such a thing would mean that the risk of a crash is very high. So you`d better send your car to the Ford Motor Co service right away, if it happens that you own a vehicle of those who have been recalled for safety.
However, according to the officials who have spoken o behalf of Ford Motor Co related to this matter, it seems that the motor industry giant has not yet heard of any accidents to have been caused by the issues that they have recently identified.
