H Ford μετά την ανάκληση 390.000 αυτοκινήτων της, ανακοίνωσε πως ανακαλεί 591.177 αυτοκίνητά της σε όλο τον κόσμο, σε τέσσερις ξεχωριστές καμπάνιες. Η μεγαλύτερη ανάκληση αφορά 518.313 Ford Fusion και Lincoln MKZ παραγωγής 2013-2015 και Edge 2015. Από αυτά, τα 487.301 βρίσκονται στις Η.Π.Α και τα 31.012 στον Καναδά. Το πρόβλημα εντοπίζεται κυρίως στις περιοχές με κρύες κλιματικές συνθήκες, με τις βίδες που συγκρατούν την ηλεκτρομηχανική υποβοήθηση του τιμονιού, ίσως να διαβρωθούν και σπάσουν. Αν αυτό συμβεί, τότε θα μπορούσε να οδηγήσει μέχρι και σε απώλεια της ηλεκτρομηχανικής υποβοήθησης. Η Ford θα επιδιορθώσει το πρόβλημα αντικαθιστώντας τις βίδες.


Η δεύτερη εκστρατεία επηρεάζει 50.157 Focus, Edge, Escape και Transit Connect παραγωγής 2014 και τα Fiesta παραγωγής 2014 και 2015. Το πρόβλημα σε αυτά εντοπίζεται στις προβληματικές αντλίες καυσίμου της Bosch, που έχουν οδηγήσει την Audi, την BMW, την Nissan και την VW να ανακαλέσουν και αυτές αυτοκίνητά τους. Το πρόβλημα στις αντλίες εντοπίζεται στην επινικέλωση στο εσωτερικό ή στο εξωτερικό περίβλημα, η οποία μπορεί να αποκολληθεί και να προκληθεί διαρροή καυσίμου. Η Ford θα τοποθετήσει στα επηρεαζόμενα αυτοκίνητα νέες αντλίες καυσίμων.

Στην τρίτη ανάκληση, 22.616 Lincoln MKZ πρέπει να επισκεπτούν κάποιο συνεργείο, ώστε οι μηχανικοί της Ford να επαναρυθμίσουν την ένταση από τα φώτα στάθμευσης όταν οι προβολείς είναι αναμμένοι, μιας και αυτά είναι πιο φωτεινά από ό, τι επιτρέπεται να είναι, με φως θα μπορούσε να επηρεάσει την όραση των άλλων οδηγών.

Τέλος, η τέταρτη ανάκληση αφορά 91 F-150 2015 στα οποία η ασπίδα θερμότητας που βρίσκεται στο κάτω μέρος του αυτοκινήτου, ίσως δεν είναι σωστά τοποθετημένη, ή ακόμη, μπορεί να μην έχει τοποθετηθεί καθόλου, πράγμα που αποτελεί κίνδυνο πυρκαγιάς.
