Ford is recalling a small batch of new 2017 Ford Edge SUVS. The automaker says approximately 111 of them are missing windshield header welds.
Basically, the windshields may have missing welds in the windshield header portion of the body sheet metal. This means they could have reduced lateral structural integrity, potentially increasing the risk of injury in a side-impact crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Edge vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Feb. 21, 2017 to Feb. 22, 2017.
Dealers will repair windshield headers at no cost to the customer. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C05.
