Ford is recalling 100,610 vehicles due to various manufacturing defects. The largest recall is for a defect that may allow the front right axle to disengage. The models affected by the axle defect include the 2013-2014 Ford Taurus, Flex, and Interceptor and the 2012-2014 Ford Edge. Also affected are the 2013-2014 Lincoln MKS and MKT models and the 2014 Lincoln MKX models.
There are more recalls for other models. If you own a Ford you should contact your dealer to see if a recall has been issued for your vehicle.
Ford stated that no accidents or deaths have been reported in connection with these defective conditions. Hopefully that is true, and tragedies can be avoided by responsibly recalling vehicles before people are injured or killed. If only Chevrolet had done so with its faulty ignition switches, more than a dozen lives may have been saved.
