Ford Recalls 555 SUVs
September 17, 2018—Ford has issued a recall for 555 examples of the 2018 Ford Edge and 2018 Lincoln MKX SUVs, reported Road Show.
The vehicles have build dates between July 27 and July 31, 2018.
The issue stems from the vehicles' door assemblies. The striker bolts, which are the bolts that the door latch connects to when closed, might be 5 millimeters shorter than they're supposed to be. That might not seem like much of a problem, but according to Ford, these shorter bolts might allow the doors to open in the event of a crash, which could increase the risk of injury, according to the report.
Technicians at dealerships will replace the striker bolts in all four doors with parts of the proper length.
