Ford Recalls Explorer and Lincoln MKZPosted by: Xavier Kwan onApril 5th, 2016
Ford has issued a recall on their 2016 Explorer (build date between October 20, 2014 to January 28, 2016) and their 2015-2016 Lincoln MKC (build date between November 25, 2013, and January 25, 2016). The recall currently impacts 5,536 vehicles of which 3,993 are in Canada.
Ford has identified the problem which results from a specific engine block and block heater design. When the heater is plugged in, they overheat and may possibly cause a fire. So far two under hood fires have been linked to this recall.
Owners will be notified around May 16. However, it is encouraged that owners contact their local dealers for additional information.
