Ford logo 2012

H Ford προχωρά στην ανάκληση 220.586 αυτοκινήτων της στη Βόρειο Αμερική. Από αυτά, τα 204.495 είναι 2010-2013 Ford Taurus, 2010-2013 Ford περιπολικά, 2010-2013 Lincoln MKS στα οποία υπάρχει το ενδεχόμενο το ελατήριο που υπάρχει στα εσωτερικά χερούλια των θυρών, να βγει από τη θέση σου. Σε περίπτωση που αυτό συμβεί, τότε υπάρχει η πιθανότητα, η πόρτα να μείνει ασφαλισμένη μετά από μια πλευρική σύγκρουση.

Επίσης ανακαλεί 16.091 2014 Ford Transit Connect στα οποία οι προεταντήρες των ζωνών ασφαλείας δεν έχουν σφιχτεί με τις σωστές προδιαγραφές ροπής, πράγμα που ίσως οδηγήσει στη χαλάρωσή τους με την πάροδο του χρόνου, αυξάνοντας τον κίνδυνο τραυματισμού σε περίπτωση σύγκρουσης.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans built Nov. 6, 2013 to Sept. 20, 2014 at Valencia Assembly Plant. All 16,091 vehicles are located in the United States.
