Ford is recalling more than 1 million vehicles to fix a problem with steering wheels that can detach from the steering column. Ford says itís aware of two accidents and one injury that may be related to the issue.

2014-2018 Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ Steering Wheels


The recall involves approximately 1.38 (1,378,637) million select 2014-18 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles.

Ford says the issue is related to potentially loose steering wheel bolts. According to Fordís Press Release:

In affected vehicles, the steering wheel bolt may not maintain torque, allowing the bolt to loosen over time, and if not serviced, a steering wheel could potentially detach and lead to a loss of steering control and increased risk of a crash.


Recalled vehicles include:

  • 2014-17 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Aug. 6, 2013 to Feb. 29, 2016
  • 2014-18 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, July 25, 2013 to March 5, 2018
  • 2014-18 Lincoln MKZ vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, July 25, 2013 to March 5, 2018

  • Most of the vehicles are located in the U.S., with 62,479 in Canada and 14,172 in Mexico. The Ford recall reference number is 18S08.

    Dealers will fix the problem for free by replacing the steering wheel bolt.
