Among the 47 (forty seven) recalls the NHTSA has announced this December comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 3,857 model year 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

US NHTSA Safety Notification 19V859000 reports that over time, the protective sleeve on the vapor fuel line may chafe through the plastic liquid fuel line and cause a fuel leak.

According to the NHTSA, a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a longer protective sleeve on the liquid fuel line, as necessary, free of charge. Owners will be notified of the safety risk with an interim letter on January 20, 2020. A second notice will be sent once parts are available, expected to be late in the first quarter of 2020. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S49.
