Common Defects and Recalls with Lincoln MKZ
In addition to the above-mentioned defects, the Ford Motor Company has recently issued numerous technical service bulletins and recalls for a number of Lincoln models.
- Halfway through March 2018, Ford issued a recall for over one million vehicles including their Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ models. The recurring problem with the vehicles is a defective steering wheel that may detach while the car is in motion. Ford Motor Company is predicting that the recalls will affect Lincoln MKZ models, years 2014-2018, that were manufactured at the Hermosillo, Mexico.
- Previously, Ford recalled 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrids claiming that the transmission range sensor might malfunction, permitting the vehicles to be shifted out of the “park” position without the driver first applying the brake. This may lead to inadvertent moving of vehicles and cause crashes. To address this defect, dealers were required to update the Powertrain Control Module software.
