Lincoln Recall Lookup
Recently, the Ford Motor Company has issued safety recalls for Lincoln vehicles over faulty steering wheel issue. The recall covers Lincoln MKZ sedans from the 2014 through 2018 model years. The faulty steering wheels could detach from the steering wheel and cause the driver to lose control of the steering.
Dealers will replace the steering wheel bolt on the vehicle with a longer bolt with more robust thread engagement and larger nylon patch placed properly for proper torque retention— at no cost to customers.
