Fuel Leaks Force a Recall For Ford’s Edge
In recall headlines over the past few weeks, General Motors (NYSE:GM) has been front and center with its Silverado pickups for a potential fire risk. However, Ford (NYSE:F) is picking up any slack with a recall of its own, as it’s bringing 46,000 Edge SUVs back in, citing fuel leak concerns.
The recall includes some vehicles that were previously brought in back in 2012, as Ford is recalling the 2012-2013 Edge that was built from September 2010 through April of last year and equipped with Ford’s 2-liter engines.
“The fuel line pulse damper metal housing may crack as a result of an improper manufacturing process,” Ford said in a report to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “A cracked fuel line pulse damper (a metal piece that smooths the movement of fuel through fuel line) housing may result in a combination of fuel odor, seepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized.”
