Select 2018 Ford F-150, Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with a 3.5-liter GTDI V6 engine for high-pressure fuel pumps with misaligned welds
Ford is issuing a safety recall in North America for approximately 7,500 2018 Ford F-150, Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with a 3.5-liter GTDI V6 engine for high-pressure fuel pumps with misaligned welds.

On the affected vehicles, the high-pressure fuel pump assembly may have inadequate welds between the pump housing and its mounting flange. As a result, the fuel pump welds in these vehicles may be susceptible to high-cycle fatigue fractures that could cause the fuel pump to move relative to its mounting flange, resulting in eventual loss of the sealing integrity of the cam cover or the fuel lines and an oil or fuel leak, increasing the risk of fire.

Ford is not aware of any fires, accidents or injuries related to this condition.

 

 

Select 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with hydraulic brake systems for missing brake hose corrosion protection plating
Ford is issuing a safety recall in North America for approximately 1,500 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with hydraulic brake systems for missing brake hose corrosion protection plating.

On the affected vehicles, some primary and/or secondary brake circuit hose assemblies located between the master cylinder and the hydraulic control unit may not have the specified anti-corrosion plating on the metal ferrules that attach a flexible braided steel hose to metal tubes. Lack of anti-corrosion plating can lead to premature corrosion of the brake hose ferrules. This can subsequently result in brake fluid leakage and reduced brake function, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

 

 

Expansion relating to select 2017-18 Ford Edge, 2017-18 Ford Fusion and 2017 Lincoln MKZ vehicles equipped with a 2.0-liter gas engine and 6F35 transmissions to replace torque converters
Ford is including an additional 27 2018 Ford Edge, 2018 Ford Fusion and 2017 Lincoln MKZ vehicles in an existing safety recall for Ford Edge, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles equipped with a 2.0-liter gas engine and 6F35 transmissions in North America that may have torque converters with inadequately welded studs.

In the affected vehicles, if the improperly welded studs detach, the torque converter will lose coupling to the engine flexplate, which can result in loss of motive power without warning while driving, which may increase the risk of a crash. The power steering, power brakes, electrical function and vehicle restraint systems will still continue to operate, and the transmission park function will not be affected.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Interesting. I just took mine in yesterday for the steering wheel recall and to fix my non closing sunglass holder in the console. Looks like I may need to check if I am effected by this new one.

The Hybrid is a 2.0L NA engine; So you can get one in a Fusion.

I thought about getting a hybrid actually but decided against it. Second kid on the way I would rather have the full size trunk to be able to fit the double stroller we just got.
