Ford Recalls 450K Fusions Over Fuel Leak

Ford is calling back about 450,000 Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans over a potential fuel tank issue. 

According to the brand, Fusions and Milans from the 2010 and 2011 model year both have a canister purge valve that does not work properly. This flaw can lead to internal pressure changes which may crack the tank, leading to a fuel leak.

Of the total 450,000 vehicles, about 411,205 are in the United States, 33,605 are in Canada and 7,055 are in Mexico. Ford says that it is not aware of any injuries or fires related to this issue.

To fix the problem, the powertrain control module software will be updated and the purge valve and fuel tank will be inspected and replaced if necessary.

Ford also issued another tiny recall for just 13 F-650 trucks from the 2016 model year. In the affected units, the park position mechanism can fail, causing the vehicle to roll away. The steering column and instrument panel will be replaced to fix the issue.
