Ford Edge Recalled for Fire Risk

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 1/15/2014 Erick Ayapana

Ford is recalling a number of model year 2012-2013 Edge crossovers due to a fire risk related to a fuel line. The recall only affects vehicles powered by the 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine.

The Problem: Affected vehicles may have a fuel line pulse damper metal housing that wasn’t installed properly. The housing could crack, resulting in a leakage of odor or fuel, which could cause a fire.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 27,933 model year 2012- 2013 Ford Edge crossovers manufactured from September 2, 2010 to April 25, 2013.
