Recall Alert: 2013 Lincoln MKT

13LincolnMKT_09_HR
Lincoln is recalling 128 of its MKT SUVs from the 2013 model year that are equipped with the limousine or hearse preparation package, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were manufactured from March 6 through April 3, the rear brake rotor bolts were not mounted correctly. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) If the bolts stick up above the wheel mounting, a loss of torque in the wheel joint and wheel separation could result. This could lead to an increased risk of injury.

Owner notification started May 24. All the affected vehicles have been quarantined and will be repaired before delivery to owners, according to Ford. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

Alan Mulally has done an excellent job with the exception of Lincoln. He should just bite the bullet and kill it off. The sales figures over the past five years have been abysmal to the point Toyota sells more Prius in one month than Lincoln sells cars in an entire year.
