FORD RECALLING NEARLY A HALF MILLION COMPACT SUVS AND PICKUP TRUCKS

Ford is recalling more than 450,000 compact SUVs and pickup trucks over loss of drive power because of a battery issue.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the recall affects 2022-2024 model year Bronco Sport SUVs and Maverick compact pickup trucks manufactured between 2022-2023.

An undetected low battery charge could lead to some electrical accessories such as hazard lights not functioning properly or cause a loss of drive power in affected vehicles. The issue affects 456,565 vehicles.

Dealers will recalibrate the body control and powertrain control modules to fix the issue for free.

Last week, Ford issued another recall for tens of thousands of small SUVs over concerns that cracked fuel injectors could leak, increasing the risk of sparking a fire in engines.

A notice said the recall is for certain 2022-2023 Bronco Sport and 2022 Escape models with 1.5-liter engines, totaling 42,652 vehicles.

The NHTSA notice said Ford is addressing the issue by having dealers update the affected vehicles’ engine control software to include fuel injector leak detection and installing a drain tube.

Owners will be contacted by Ford with a recall notice via mail sometime this month.
