Ford has announced three separate recalls, which together will impact a total of around 40,000 vehicles. The models, dated from 2014 to 2020, include a number of Ford Expedition and Mustang vehicles.
The largest campaign involves Ford's Expedition and Lincoln's Navigator SUVs. In both cases, Lincoln explains that the front collision avoidance system's assistance functions (collision warning, dynamic brake assist and automatic emergency braking) simply don't work. As a result, if a collision is imminent, the vehicle won't warn the driver, nor will it slow down to mitigate the force of the impact. These are not functions that make these products autonomous, but some drivers rely on these devices knowing that they’re there to help them.
25,081 vehicles are affected in all. Of the total, the recall identifies 158 Ford Mustangs and 1,106 Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Aviators in Canada.
