Ford Recalls 465,000 Model Year 2013 Vehicles Over Fuel Leak, Fire Concerns

Ford has issued a recall of nearly half a million model year 2013 vehicles over concerns about possible fuel tank leaks that could result in a fire.

Models included in the recall include the Fusion, Flex, Explorer, Taurus, Interceptor (sedan and utility), along with Lincoln’s MKZ, MKS, and MKT vehicles.

The recall involves a possibly faulty fuel delivery module that could leak and potentially result in a fire.

Ford says it knows of 600 consumer complaints related to this defect as of March 31, but claims that none of these incidents have resulted in fires and that it knows of no accidents or injuries related to the recall.

According to Reuters, Ford’s supply of fuel delivery modules is currently limited, so not all recalled vehicles will be able to be repaired until September.
