Ford recall: 39K SUVs at-risk of a serious malfunction

If you have a Ford or Lincoln SUV, you might want to leave it outside.

The automaker recalled 39,000 Ford and Lincoln SUVs due to 16 reports of engines catching fire, according to a statement from the Ford Motor Company.

The recall covers some Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles built between Dec. 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. One injury resulted from the reports of fires, but no accidents occurred.

Fourteen out of the 16 vehicles affected by the fires were from rental car companies, according to Ford.

Ford is advising the owners of these vehicles to leave them outside and away from structures until a solution to the problem is available.

The company is still working to establish the cause of the fires and offer a solution.

This is not the first batch of recalls from the automaker this year.

Last month, Ford recalled more than 650,000 vehicles due to failing windshield wipers.
