A failure to properly affix steering wheels has triggered a recall of 1.38 million Ford and Lincoln cars in North America. Ford Motor is issuing a safety recall for the 2014 through 2018 model-year Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans.
The recall comes after officials discovered that the cars have “potentially loose steering wheel bolts that could result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column,” Ford said in a statement. The automaker said it had identified at least two accidents potentially connected to the defect, as well as one injury.
The recall covers the 2014 through 2017 Fusion made at Ford’s Flat Rock, Mich. plant from Aug. 6, 2013, through Feb. 29, 2016; the 2014 through 2018 Fusion made at Ford’s Hermosillo, Mexico, plant from July 25, 2013, through March 5, 2018; and the 2014 through 2018 Lincoln MKZ made at the Hermosillo, Mexico, plant from July 25, 2013, through March 5, 2018.
