Ford Motor Co. plans three recalls covering nearly 131,000 vehicles, including the 2016 Mustang and older crossovers, for various defects.
The company is recalling 128,823 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers from the 2009-10 model years in the U.S. and Canada for “possible corrosion under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted.” The rust can lead to a check engine light, fuel odor or a fuel leak, potentially resulting in a fire.
The recall covers models sold or registered in “corrosion states and provinces” only, meaning regions that use salt to clear roads of snow and ice. It covers 110,636 vehicles in the U.S. and 18,187 in Canada.
Ford also is recalling 1,906 Mustangs from the 2016 model year because of occupant restraint parts that could have been damaged while shipping.
If damaged, the affected parts might not adhere to federal child restraint anchor system standards, Ford said in a statement.
All but six of the potentially impacted Mustangs are located in the U.S. Five are in Mexico, and one is in Canada.
The automaker also is recalling 72 E-series cutaway and chassis cab vehicles from the 2016 model year for a possible trailer brake controller glitch that can result in an “extended braking distance.”
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents, fires or injuries related to any of the defects. Dealers will make any necessary repairs to the vehicles at no cost, Ford said.
