Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) HEFFX Highlights
- Seven years worth of Ford Motor Co.’s most-popular SUV model are a step closer to recall in the U.S. over mounting reports of exhaust fumes leaking inside.
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has taken an interim step toward prompting the recall of 1.3 million 2011-2017 Ford Explorers, including 2016-2017 Explorer Police Interceptor models, according to a posting on the agency’s website. This comes more than a year after the NHTSA first started looking into odors and exhaust issues in the vehicles.
- The NHTSA said on its website that it has upgraded the probe to an “engineering analysis” after receiving at least 2,719 complaints pertaining to those model year Explorers.
- “Our decisions are driven by the data available,” Michael Levine, a Ford spokesman, said in an email Saturday. “When the data indicates a safety recall is needed, we move quickly on behalf of our customers.”
