Ford: Recalls Posted for Sedan and Utility Interceptor

A Ford spokeswoman said today that three different recalls for several of its best-selling cars were sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last week. The biggest recall affects about 465,000 vehicles.

The 2013 Ford Explorer SUV, Taurus sedan, Flex crossover, Fusion sedan, Police Interceptor Utility and Police Interceptor Sedan; and the 2013 Lincoln MKS sedan, MKT crossover, and MKZ sedan are all being recalled because a fuel delivery module in the vehicles’ fuel tanks may leak, representing a fire risk. Customers affected by the defect may smell a fuel odor or observe leaks.

  • Police Interceptor Utility: 8,384
  • • Police Interceptor Sedan: 11,517

Ford said it had received 600 complaints about the leaks since March 31 but said it has not received reports of any fires, accidents or injuries as a result. The recall affects about 465,000 vehicles throughout the world.

This is also not the first time a problem has been reported with the 2013 Explorer’s fuel tank. The Explorer, along with the Taurus and Lincoln MKS, were recalled in March for faulty sealing on side of the tanks.

The latest recalls were not posted on NHTSA’s Web site as of Monday morning. The Detroit News reported the recalls on Friday.
