Ford Motor Co. joins bandwagons of car manufacturers recalling cars due to faulty parts that could potentially cause the car to stall without warning.
The reason behind the recall is because of a faulty fuel pump control modules in about 88,151 cars, including its 2013-15 model year of Ford Taurus sedans, Ford Flex crossover utility vehicles, Lincoln MKS sedan, Lincoln MKT SUVs and Ford Interceptor sedans.
Also, it is recalling 2,472 units of the Ford Transit vans to replace fuel injection pumps in certain models produced in the year 2015-16.
Ford is updating software on the power windows of the Ford Escape SUVs of the 2017 models which will see 23,150 units being called to be updated with the software.
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or mishaps related to the faulty parts in their cars. Many of the car manufacturers initiate recalls proactively to avoid any damages on their brand. Any recall based on the finding of another automotive body or even the customer, the brand image takes a beating and in turn takes a toll on their overall sales and profit.
Since these models are not being produced in India, none of the Ford cars in production has been listed part of the recalled cars worldwide.
