Ford announces major truck recall

Across Canada, Ford is recalling nearly 3,400 Edge Crossovers built between Sept. 2, 2010 and April 25, 2013, and close to 46,000 worldwide.

The recall is due to a damper in the metal housing around the fuel line resulting in a fire hazard.

Ford said on Jan. 16 that no crashes or injuries related to the incident have been reported.

Due to incorrect insulation, the housing may crack over time. Depending on the severity, cracks can result in fuel leaks.

In a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin, Ford states it will begin notifying owners of the recall on Feb. 28, 2014. After receiving notice, Edge owners can take their vehicles to Ford dealers who will replace the equipment and fix the problem free of charge.

Owners who were affected by the 2012 recall of the same vehicle are not exempt from this recall and should follow up with their Ford dealer.
