2014-2018 Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ: Recall Alert

2015 Lincoln MKZ;

CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1.3 million model-year 2014-18 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans

The Problem: The steering-wheel bolt may not maintain torque, allowing the bolt to loosen over time. If not serviced, a steering wheel could potentially detach and lead to a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Lincoln manufacturer Ford said it was aware of two accidents and one injury associated with the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace for free the steering-wheel bolt with a longer bolt featuring more robust thread engagement and a larger nylon patch placed for proper torque retention.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
