Recall Alert: 2015 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and 2016 Ford Explorer

RECALL Subject : Fuel Tank Mounting Bolts may be Loose

Report Receipt Date: SEP 28, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V605000

Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company

SUMMARY:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and 2016 Ford Explorer vehicles manufactured on July 24, 2015.

If the fuel tank separates from the vehicle, a fuel leak may occur, increasing the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the fuel tank attachment bolts, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S26.
