Ford Recalls 450K Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan Sedans Over Balky Fuel Tank Valve

Ford Recalls 450K Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan Sedans Over Balky Fuel Tank Valve

By Joseph Dobrian, November 23, 2015

Ford Motor Company has issued a safety recall in North America, affecting more than 450,000 Ford and Mercury midsize sedans. The recall involves that approximate number of 2010 and 2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles. Some of these cars might have a canister purge valve that does not work properly, causing internal pressure changes inside the fuel tank. Repeated pressure changes inside the tank could result in a crack on the top of the tank, possibly causing a fuel leak—which, in the presence of an ignition source, could lead to a fire.

Affected vehicles include certain 2010-2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant from July 21, 2008, through March 4, 2011. A total of 451,865 vehicles might be affected in North America, including 411,205 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories; 33,605 in Canada; and 7,055 in Mexico. Dealers will update the powertrain control module software, inspect the canister purge valve and fuel tank for leaks, and replace those components, if necessary, at no cost to the customer. Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries, or fires related to this condition.
