2017 Ford Explorer, Taurus, Police Interceptors: Recall Alert
<meta itemprop=”width” content=”1170″>
<meta itemprop=”height” content=”1170″>
Vehicles Affected: Approximately 250 model-year 2017 Ford Explorer SUVs, Taurus sedans, and Police Interceptor SUVs and sedans
The Problem: The steering gear heat shield fasteners may corrode, allowing the heat shield to detach; this could cause the steering gear to overheat, increasing the steering effort required, especially at lower speeds, and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the heat shield fasteners, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford will begin notifying owners this month. 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 www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
