Did the Ford Motor Company recall your car this year? Ford announced three major recalls in February because of serious safety concerns. These problems affect everything from internal technology to door latches.
So far, only five major accidents have happened as a result. However, millions of drivers everywhere are at risk.
Which vehicles did Ford recall?
Ford announced the following recalls in February. If your car or truck is listed below, your dealer should fix the issue for free:
- Sudden downshift: Your car could suddenly downshift into first gear. At high speeds, this could result in a fatal accident. Affected vehicles include 2011, 2012 and 2013 F-150s.
- Unsecured door latch: Your door latches may not fully connect because of a buildup of silicon. Your doors could swing open at high speeds. Affected vehicles include 2017, 2018 and 2019 Lincoln Continentals.
- Defective instrument panel: Your dashboard instrument panel might be blank when you start the car. Without it, you cannot drive safely. Affected vehicles include 2019 Ford Mustang, 2019 Lincoln Nautilus and 2019 Lincoln Navigator.
Ford did not recall every single vehicle under these models. Each recall involves specific assembly dates and locations. These are far from the only recalls Ford announced in the past four months. They also recalled vehicles due to fire concerns and unsafe airbags. If you are worried your vehicle could be part of a recall, contact your dealer today.
These recalls could cause or contribute to an accident. If a vehicle defect caused you to get into an accident, you may need help to pay your medical bills. Legal representation could help you explore your options.
