2012-2013 Ford Edge Recalled for Fire Risk
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.
The Fix: Ford will replace the fuel line free of charge. The recall, which starts next months, supersedes a prior recall (identified as 12V-438).
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 27,933 model year 2012-2013 Ford Edge crossovers manufactured from September 2, 2010 to April 25, 2013.
