Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Vehicles Because Their Steering Wheels May Fall Off

Ford Focus Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Vehicles Because Their Steering Wheels May Fall Off

FORD has been forced to recall over 1.3million cars in the United States over a dodgy steering wheel.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration mounted an investigation after they received complaints from a number of drivers, including a report from Georgia that a steering wheel had detached while a vehicle was turning off the road.

Ford Motor Co. has announced a safety recall for 1.4 million 2014-18 Ford Fusion (a 2018 model shown above) and Lincoln MKZ vehicles in North America, saying that because of issues with the steering wheel bolts, the steering wheel could detach. Gradually loosening steering wheel bolts could eventually cause steering wheels to detach from the steering wheel column.

The steering wheel bolts can loosen over time - and have actually caused two crashes and one injury.

Dealers will replace the steering wheel bolt on the vehicle with a longer bolt with more robust thread engagement and larger nylon patch placed properly for proper torque retention at no cost to customers.

The recall affects 2014-2018 Ford Fusions and 2014-2018 Lincoln MKZ cars, but only applies to cars in North America. Obviously, the consequences of this are serious, because no one wants their steering wheel to come away in their hands while driving. Around 6,000 Fusion and Ford Focus cars built between 2013 and 2016 with one-liter and 1.6-liter engines were also recalled over the risk of fire from fractured clutch pressure plates.

Ford assured drivers that the work to fix the problems would be carried out free of charge. Ford isn't the only manufacturer to issue a recall for steering wheels coming off.
