Ford Recalls 1.4 Million Cars Because The Steering Wheel Can Come Off

Steering wheels that can become loose or detach entirely triggered a recall of 1.38 million Ford and Lincoln cars in North America.

The recall covers Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs, both from model years 2014 - 2018. One person was injured.

Ford said in a statement: "Safety is our number one priority - we want to reassure our customers that the affected vehicles remain safe to drive". The notice will direct them to contact a dealer for a free service that will replace the faulty bolts.

The other recall applies to about 6,000 select models of Ford Focus and Ford Fusion cars in the USA and Canada. This can cause drivers to lose control. This new bolt is longer and features a larger nylon patch that should help it stay tight. Surely enough, this does not reflect well on one of the nation's leading dealers. No other vehicles have been affected by the recall.

The majority of its immigrants come from other European nations but it also has expats from Afghanistan, China, Iraq and Somalia. Coming in at number one is Finland , which pushed last year's top country, Norway , into second place.

It is believed to affect 1.3 million cars in the USA, 62,000 in Canada and 14,000 in Mexico.

In 2011, General Motors Co recalled 2,100 Cruze cars because the steering wheel could detach. Per CNBC, the automaker is recalling another 6,000 vehicles due to a different problem. The affected vehicles were built in Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan, and Hermosillo, Mexico, assembly plants between July of 2013 and March of 2018.

As for which particular models are impacted by the recall, Ford claims that Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured between 2014 and 2018 are at risk. Leaking transmission fluid near an ignition source can lead to the risk of an engine compartment fire. At the time the agency had no reports of crashes or injuries. Akin to the steering wheel malfunctions, those who experience this complication will not be charged for the inconvenience.
