Portage Expedition, Lincoln Navigator reviewed for fire risk

Proprietors of around 2021 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs are being encouraged to leave their vehicles outside and away from structures until they can be taken to sellers for fixes. Portage gave a review covering 39,000 vehicles because of motor flames under their hoods, and it’s unsure right now what’s making the blazes start. As per records posted on the National Highway Safety Administration’s site, “The cure is still being worked on.”

Portage says it has reports of 16 under-hood fires, with 14 of those occurrence in vehicles possessed via vehicle rental organizations. The flames can happen even while the motor isn’t running. As per Ford, “A few clients have detailed a consuming smell and smoke from the front traveler motor compartment while driving.” The flames appear to be beginning “in the back of the motor compartment close to the traveler side of the vehicle.”

Ford isn’t at this time recommending that owners stop driving the vehicles despite the potential for an under-the-hood fire. According to Jeffrey Marentic, senior manager of Ford traveller cars, “We are working hard to determine the underlying cause of this issue and ensuing fix so that clients may keep getting a kick out of using their vehicles.”

Passage says the flames seem, by all accounts, to be restricted to SUVs worked from Dec. 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021 and says it has no fire reports from vehicles worked previously or after those dates.

In a different review, Ford is likewise bringing in around 310,000 hard core trucks on the grounds that the driver’s air pack may not blow up in an accident. That review covers specific 2016 F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 trucks. As per archives posted by NHTSA, residue can get into the airbag wiring in the controlling wheel, which can slice power to important parts. To fix the issue, sellers will supplant the directing wheel’s wiring.

What’s more, in a third review, Ford declared it is getting 464 Mustang Mach-E electric SUVs from 2021. A product issue in the electric vehicle can cause accidental speed increase, deceleration or a deficiency of drive power in all-wheel-drive vehicles. NHTSA reports say that the powertrain control PC may not identify a product blunder. The issue will be fixed by vendors or by an internet based programming update.
