Ford Recalls 220K Vehicles

Ford is calling back about 220,000 vehicles in North America over three separate issues. 

The largest of the three recalls affects 212,911 Ford Explorer and Police Interceptor Utility vehicles in North America from the 2011 to 2013 model year. The issue has to with the interior door handle spring which can become unseated, increasing the risk that the door may become unlatched in a side-impact crash. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries that occurred as a result of this issue.

Next, Ford is bringing back the 2013-2015 Lincoln MKT limo and hearse for issues with the vacuum pump relay. About 1,725 vehicles are affected by the problem, which Ford says has caused at least two underhood fires that they are aware of. Dealers will replace the vacuum pump relay and associated wiring for free.

Finally, the brand is calling back 2011-2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Ambulances equipped with 6.7-liter diesel engines to fix a problem with the exhaust heat temperature sensor. About 6,500 of these ambulances are affected by the problem, which result in an inaccurate high-temperature reading.
