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.
