The American automaker also issued a recall for approximately 2,592 units of the Ford Transit Connect van.

The panoramic roof on the affected units may not have been attached properly to the rest of the body.

This in turn may lead to wind noise, water leaks and, in some cases, the separation of the panoramic roof from the vehicle.
