Ford Motor Company is recalling approximately 555 2018 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX midsize SUVs because some door striker bolts may be 5 millimeters shorter than the required length. In the event of a crash, a shorter bolt may allow the door to open, increasing the odds of injury.
To remedy the problem, dealers will replace door striker bolts in all four doors, at no charge to customers. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries connected with this issue.
Recalled vehicles include 2018 Ford Edge and 2018 Lincoln MKX vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant from July 27 to 31. The recall covers 503 vehicles in the United States and its federalized territories, 51 in Canada, and one in Mexico. Owners can call Ford at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 18C06.
