Recall Alert: 2011 and 2012 Ford Transit Connect
Ford is recalling 16,330 model-year 2011-12 Transit Connects because the wiper arms might not be correctly riveted, which could cause inconsistent clearing of the windshield or possible detachment of the wiper arm, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
If the wiper arm detaches, the windshield wiper will fail and the driver’s visibility could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford will notify owners of the safety recall by Monday. For more info, owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
