American carmaker Ford has issued a recall for a total of more than 88,000 vehicles across Canada, the United States and Mexico over a stalling issue.
Of the approximately 88,151 vehicles affected, 77,502 are in the United States, 7,353 are in Canada and 1,083 are in Mexico.
American police officers may have to be without their trusty steeds for some time, as Ford has recalled all Police interceptor sedans built in Ford's Chicago plant from 2011 to 2015.
All the affected vehicle which include theFord Taurus and Ford Police Interceptor sedans, the Ford Flex crossover along with the Lincoln MKS sedan and Lincoln MKT crossover were built between August 21, 2011 and August 31, 2015.
All the affected models are 2013–15 model year cars and all of them use the same 3.5-litre turbocharged Ecoboost V6 engine that produces 355bhp.
According to Ford, the cars may stall while being driven, and may not start up again or they may not start up at all in the first place. The starting and stalling issues emanate from possible failures of the fuel-pump control module, according to a statement by Ford.
Ford dealerships will inspect and replace the fuel pump control module as needed free of charge.
Ford is currently unaware of any accidents or issues stemming from the recall.
