Recalls for 2017 Lincoln

2017 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL
NHTSA Campaign ID:EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS
Manufacturer:Ford Motor Company
Manufacture Dates:06/14/2016 - 09/23/2016
Potential Units Affected:1827

Defect Description:

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles manufactured June 14, 2016, to September 23, 2016 and equipped with high intensity discharge (HID) headlights. The headlights may have been built with incorrect lenses, adversely affecting the turn signal visibility as well as not being properly marked. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

Consequence:

Reduced turn signal visibility to other drivers and pedestrians can increase the risk of a crash.

Action:

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the headlights, replacing them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 16, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C15.
2017 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL
NHTSA Campaign ID:AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR MODULE
Manufacturer:Ford Motor Company
Manufacture Dates:01/13/2016 - 01/18/2017
Potential Units Affected:27531

Defect Description:

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles. In the event of a crash, the driver's frontal air bag may not fully inflate or the air bag cushion may detach from the air bag module. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence:

During deployment, if the air bag does not fully inflate or the cushion detaches, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Action:

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag module, free of charge. Remedy parts are not currently available. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed March 17, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts are available, currently expected to be in August 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C02.

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2016 Ford Taurus, 2016-2017 Ford Flex, Lincoln MKT, 2017 Ford Explorer and Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility vehicles equipped with 3.5L GTDI engines. Improperly brazed turbocharger oil supply tubes may leak oil on engine components.

Consequence:

An oil leak, in the presence of an ignition source, increases the risk of a fire.

Action:

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the turbocharger oil supply tubes, free of charge. The recall began on January 31, 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S46.
