Ford to recall US police carsJanuary 22, 2021
In the United States, Lincoln Aviator and Ford Explorer Police Interceptor cars were recalled due to dirt in the washer fluid.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2020 Lincoln Aviator has already been recalled six times and the SUV must now be returned to the dealer for repairs. However, the last recall included not only the Aviator, but also the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor, namely 286 units, the cars were assembled between May 26 and 30, and the Lincoln SUV – from May 28 to June 2 last year.
So what’s the problem this time? The recalled vehicles were shipped with contaminated windshield fluid, Ford said. As a result, they no longer meet Federal Vehicle Safety Standards. However, the brand is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
As for the repair, the authorized specialists of the company will replace not only the windshield washer fluid, but also the entire pump assembly, bottle neck, fluid level sensors, and front and rear wiper blades. They will also “inspect and repair the paint and exterior components,” Ford added.
The company did not say when the recall is expected to begin, but owners are likely to receive notice in the coming weeks.
