Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,300 model-year 2019 Lincoln Nautilus SUVs equipped with lane-centering assist and adaptive front steering
The Problem: The vehicle may not adequately detect if a driver has their hands off the steering wheel, which could lead to the hands on/off detection system not alerting the driver to place their hands back on the steering wheel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Lincoln manufacturer Ford said it is not aware of any related accidents or injuries.
The Fix: Dealers will update the power steering control module software for free.
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.
