Ford is recalling certain 2017 Ford Edge, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ models recall to fix a transmission issue.
Ford says it needs to replace torque converters that may have inadequately welded studs.
If the weld studs detach, the torque converter will lose coupling to the engine flexplate. This can result in loss of motive power without warning while driving, which may increase the risk of a crash. The power steering, power brakes, electrical function and vehicle restraint systems will continue to operate, and the transmission park function will not be affected.
Ford says it’s not aware of any accidents associated with the issue.
The recall affects nearly 6,000 models with 6F35 Transmissions and most of those in the United States. Models include:
- 2017 Ford Edge vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, April 25, 2017 to June 20, 2017
- 2017 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, May 4, 2017 to June 15, 2017
- 2017 Lincoln MKZ vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, May 4, 2017 to June 19, 2017
