Ford is recalling just 20 model-year 2013 Fusion sedans due to a problem in the steering system that could result in loss of vehicle control, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Affected vehicles were manufactured between April 19 and April 23, 2013. The steering gears may be missing an internal retaining clip, which could cause components inside the gear to become dislodged inside the gear assembly; this could result in impaired steering and loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford will begin notifying owners in mid-June, and dealers will replace the steering gear for free. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or the NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.Related
