Ford to recall 465,000 vehicles globally

Ford is recalling 465,000 vehicles because the fuel tanks can leak and possibly cause fires if the leaked fuel ignites.

The global recall affects the Ford brand’s Fusion, Explorer, Taurus, Flex, Police Utility and Police Interceptor. Also covered are the Lincoln MKS, MKT and MKZ. All the vehicles are from the 2013 model year.

Ford says a connector from the fuel tank to the fuel line is the source of the leak. Customers could smell gas or see a leak on the ground.

The company said no fires or crashes have been reported because of the problem.

About 390,000 of the recalled vehicles are in the U.S., with another 24,154 in Canada and 7,600 in Mexico. The rest are in Europe, South America, Asia and other areas.
