Another Huge Recall Done By Ford
It looks like the ailing Ford Motor Company is in for more trouble. And when they do encounter trouble, it seems like the company only goes deeper and deeper in the financial pit that they are currently in.
The 1970 Ford Maverick parts creator has just currently made another big mistake and this time, it is to actually recall another huge amount of vehicles that were sent and marketed in the United States auto market. How huge, you may ask? Well, let us just simply say that the company has recalled back to its arms 145,000 vehicles. The number may not be that huge compared to the 1.2 million vehicle recall one but this recent recall is still going to mean that the company is going to spend a huge amount of cash and funds just to get every little wrongly produced part right.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these 145,000 vehicles that the company is recalling in the United States market would be actually holding various problems and defects. The list even ranges from defective latches to the much greater drivetrains that have more serious faults.
So now you are thinking if the Ford Maverick that you own is included in the vehicles to be recalled. Well, the company has spoken and according to them, they would be recalling units of 2005 model year produced Ford Five Hundreds. The list also does include units of Mercury Montego produced for the same model year. Aside from these, the company is also recalling their Ford Freestar minivans which were created for the model years 2005 and 2006.
If you go rushing online and checking on the NHTSA website for more information on such a recall, you would then know that these vehicles are going to be recalled for the fact that the side door latches that were used has been known to let in water. Such a situation has made owners go through more problems especially during cold weather. Because the latches of the door let water in, the water freezes during cold times and the door could not be opened because of that.
