Ford Issues Two Safety Recalls & Expands Another in the US

2018 Ford F-150

Ford is proactive about addressing safety issues with their vehicles. This includes issuing recalls when problems are discovered that affect the operation of Ford cars and trucks. In June, the company issued two safety recalls and expanded a third, all in the United States. If you have a Ford, here's what you need to know.

Which Vehicles Are Affected by These Recalls?

The first recall is for a welding issue for a high-pressure fuel pump, which affects the following vehicles (approximately 5,600 in the U.S.):

  • 2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Truck Plant between March 14, 2018, and April 24, 2018
  • 2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant between March 20, 2018, and April 17, 2018
  • 2018 Ford Expedition vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant between March 14, 2018, and April 12, 2018
  • 2018 Lincoln Navigator vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant between Feb. 20, 2018, and May 6, 2018

The misaligned seal on this fuel pump can eventually degrade, increasing the risk of fire; however, no fires, injuries, or accidents have been attributed to this issue. The reference number for this recall is 18S17.
