Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator SUVs Recalled for Fire Hazard

Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator SUVs Recalled for Fire Hazard

May 20, 2022 — Ford has recalled roughly 39,000 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs from the 2021 model-year that can catch on fire.

The recall was issued after 16 reported incidents. The recalled vehicles were built in the U.S. between December 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021.

“Of the 16 incidents, 12 reportedly occurred while the vehicle was parked and off, one reportedly while the vehicle was parked and on, and three reportedly while the vehicle was in motion,” according to Ford.

Ford is asking owners of the recalled SUVs to park outside and away from structures because the vehicles may catch on fire even when parked and the ignition is turned off.

“These vehicles may pose a risk of under hood fire, including while the vehicle is parked and off,” Ford wrote in a statement.

“Ford, which began investigating the issue on March 24, 2022, has not yet established a cause. The incidents are believed to originate in the rear of the engine compartment near the passenger side of the vehicle.”

Ford also recalled roughly 310,000 heavy-duty trucks that may have non-functioning airbags. The recalled models include 2016 F-250, 350, 450 and 550 trucks.
