Also under review were 363 copies of Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator 2018 model year due to faulty electric rear window glass.

To the previous recall campaign associated with the faulty and traumatic Takata airbags, the US automotive concern Ford added another 360,000 cars of its own brand.

Also it became known about the recall campaign of 363 units of the newest Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator in the USA and Canada. These cars were produced from the conveyors from November 27 to December 9, 2017.

It may not allow the glass to automatically reverse if there is an obstacle in the opening of the frame. This increases the risk of injury to rear passengers. Ford dealers will also check the faulty component and replace it with a new one if necessary.
