Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Fusion and Lincoln MKZ Vehicles for Loose Steering Wheel Bolts
  • Ford Motor Company issues two safety recalls in North America

Ford issues a safety recall in North America for approximately 1.3 Million select 2014-18 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles for loose steering wheel bolts that could lead to a steering wheel detaching from steering column

While you are maneuvering your car on the road, normally the steering wheel is supposed to move in two directions only for obvious reasons. That is clockwise or counter-clockwise depending on which direction you want to go in.

Yet were it to lead your car towards some other vista, you would definitely start to get pretty worried since chances of an accident would be paramount in your mind. To even imagine the steering wheel coming loose during the driving process is one of the scariest and most dreadful scenarios for a car owner.

It looks like Ford has recalled 1.3 million of its Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs due to precisely this problem which was rampant in them. Two accidents and an injury have occurred due to this negligence on the part of Ford.

Ford Motors does not want such a thing to be repeated in the future. The problem lies in the steering wheel bolt which has come unhinged and does not deliver the proper torque to the wheels.

This bolt had been slowly unwinding itself in all these recalled cars. The fix lies in making it perfectly functional again. Ford will install a bigger bolt with more threads in it.
