Ford Recalls Brand New 2017 Lincoln Continentals

DEARBORN (WWJ) – Ford is recalling nearly 2,000 brand new Lincolns over an issue with the turn signals.

The automaker says the 2017 model year Continental sedans have a problem with the headlamps. Approximately 1,900 vehicles are affected.

Ford says the headlamps may have been built incorrectly with LED lenses that are missing the lens optics necessary to meet federal turn signal visibility requirements. No accidents or injuries associated with this issue have been reported.

Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, June 14, 2016 to Sept. 23, 2016.

Dealers will replace headlamp assemblies if necessary at no cost to the customer.

Separately, Ford is also recalling 60 Edge vehicles to update the anti-lock braking system. The company says incorrect ABS module software may have been loaded into some vehicles when they were in for service. Affected vehicles include certain 2015-16 Ford Edge vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Feb. 9, 2015 to Aug. 12, 2016, which may have had software programmed during service between Aug. 6, 2016 and Sept. 28, 2016. No injuries or accidents have been reported.
