Ford has recalled many different vehicle models in recent years, including the C-Max Energi, C-Max Hybrid, Crown Victoria, Edge and Escape. It has also recalled its E-Series van, including E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450, and its F-Series pickup trucks, including its Super Duty models. Other vehicles recalled by Ford include the Explorer, Fiesta, Flex, Focus, Focus ST, Freestar, Fusion, Shelby, Taurus and Transit.
Reasons for recalls among Ford vehicles vary widely. Ford recalled nearly 600,000 Ford Escape and C-Max vehicles due to potential delayed deployment of the side-curtain airbags in these vehicles as a result of programming errors in the vehicle's software. More than 200,000 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossover vehicles were recalled due to a potential fire risk while around 1.1 million Ford Explorers were recalled due to power steering problems, steering gear issues, child-safety lock issues and potential leaky fuel tanks.
Certain Ford Flex vehicles were recalled due to airbag deployment issues in front crahes, loss of drive function due to right-hand half shaft problems and leaky fuel tanks. Some Fusion models were recalled because of potential rollaway risk, airbag deployment issues and seatback frames that do not comply with required standards.
