2013 Ford Explorer (Ford Motor Co.)
Ford is recalling about 465,000 cars and SUVs because the fuel tanks can leak and cause fires.

The global recall affects the Ford brand's Fusion, Explorer, Taurus, Flex, Police Utility and Police Interceptor. Also covered are the Lincoln MKS, MKT and MKZ. All the vehicles are from the 2013 model year.

Ford says customers could smell gas or see a leak on the ground. The company says no fires or crashes have been reported because of the problem.

About 390,000 of the vehicles are in the U.S., with another 23,000 in Canada and 7,600 in Mexico. The rest are in Europe, South America, Asia and other areas.

I'm reporting this comment as:

      To : Scandrick, If you would read the news paper once in a while, You would know that Ford is one of the Best selling cars in the U.S. Its neck and neck with that other Tin can of a car called Toyota. Thats What it is. Thats why Our economy sucks. All the profits are going overseas to Japanese , Koreans, and The Germans.

Great car.As a American General said the Germans at the Battle of the bulge in World War 2, Nuts !

      Those darn union workers are still getting high during their lunch breaks. Ford is another target company for republican hating liberal democrats. Cigarette companies should also investigate this type of targeting and file law suits. This should be investigated like the IRS scandal.
