Ford has recalled some 2013 Ford Explorers, as well as some 2012 models of the Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS because of concerns that leaks in the fuel tank pose a fire risk. The action involves about 3,037 cars and utility vehicles that were manufactured from July 19, 2011, to March 15, 2012. All the vehicles are made at the Chicago auto plant.
Ford notified owners by letter starting on April 22. Owners are to take their vehicle to a dealer to have the fuel tank inspected. If the seal is not adequate to provide the strength needed in the case of an impact the fuel talk should be replaced. No accidents, injuries or fires have been reported. Ford has had warranty claims for some fuel tanks that had either odor or fuel leaks, both in the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
