Ford Gas Tank Recall Impacts 452,000 CarsPosted by: Lydia Siu onNovember 24th, 2015
Ford has issues a recall which will impact nearly 452,000 of their midsize vehicles; approximately 411,000 impacted cars are in the U.S., 34,000 in Canada and 7,000 in Mexico. Vehicles impacted in this recall include the Ford Fusion with a build date between 2010 through 2011 and the Mercury Milan sedans built in Mexico between July 21, 2008 through March 4, 2011.
Ford says the issue is with a gas tank that can possibly leak fuel. A valve on a gasoline vapour recovery canister can get stuck which causes repeated air pressure changes in the gas tank. This constant pressure change can eventually cause a crack on the top of the tank and a potentially result in a fuel leak. Ford states that there are currently no reports of fires or injuries from the problem.
Owners are encouraged to contact their local dealers for additional information. Dealers will inspect the vehicle’s fuel tank and valves for leaks and replace them if needed.
