2016 model Ford Explorers and 2015 and 2016 model years Lincoln MKCs are being recalled after 2 MKCs caught fire. The fires started when a block heater overheated. Block heaters are typically found in cars built to drive in cold regions. The severity of the fires and the wellbeing of the involved passengers are unknown by Ford.
Ford is also set to recall around 38,000 Ford Transit vans from the 2015 and 2016 model years due to the misplacement of side airbags. Ford heavy trucks are also being recalled because the parking brake connector clips need to be replaced.
Thankfully, none of these potentially dangerous vehicles have resulted in any deaths or injuries thus far. However, these recalls mean that thousands of cars with faulty parts are currently on American roadways.
