Ford Recalling Some Current Models

Recall due to fires that started in the cabs of two F-150 trucks at a Michigan assembly plant in November and December

Ford Motor Co. said on Dec. 30 that it is recalling 19,600 2011 model year trucks and crossover SUVs over concerns that an electrical short could cause a fire.

In a letter to the NHTSA Ford said the recall on 2011 model year F-150 trucks, Super Duty trucks (F-250 through F-550) and its Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles was due to fires that started in the cabs of two F-150 trucks at a Michigan assembly plant in November and December.

About 15,000 of the affected vehicles were sold in the United States, and most of the rest in Canada, said Wes Sherwood, Ford spokesman.

"Ford is not aware of any reports for related fires on vehicles in service," the automaker told NHTSA.
