Recall Alert: 2013 Lincoln MKZ

2013LincolnMKZ

Ford is recalling 107 model-year 2013 Lincoln MKZ sedans due to a problem with the electrical system that could result in exposed wiring, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Affected vehicles were manufactured between April 25, 2012, and March 15, 2013, and are equipped with an engine block heater. During use, the engine block heater cords may be bent, and in certain temperatures the wire insulation may crack, exposing the electrical wires; this increases the risk of electric shock.

Ford will begin notifying owners June 17, and dealers will replace the block heater cord for free. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.

Sounds like a very bad problem to have! Glad the issue is being addressed.

I would have thought they picked this up when they had all the extra quality inspections they had earlier this year. At least, its not having the issues the Fusion was having like the engine overheating.
