Ford remembers 100,000 hybrid cars

Ford, the second largest car manufacturer in the United States, has had to repair many vehicles due to fire hazards. About 100,000 hybrid cars from the last two years will be returned to the workshop. In addition, the existing recovery campaign will be expanded.

Ford repatriates 100,000 hybrid vehicles in the United States because of fire hazards. The restoration is affecting Ford Escape, Maverick and Lincoln Corsair vehicles built between 2020 and 2022, the American car manufacturer said.

In the event of an engine failure, large amounts of engine oil and fuel vapor may be released. These can collect nearby sources of ignition and cause possible fires under the cover. So far no accidents or injuries.

The second-largest car manufacturer in the United States is also expanding the May record for 27,000 cars after five more fires were reported. Types of Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator from 2021 have been affected. There is a risk of fire here even without a running engine, which is why damaged vehicles should not be parked in front of buildings. One person was injured in connection with the technical error. Even before the new announcement, Ford led the way for all American car manufacturers this year by rolling back 44 times for 6.7 million cars.
