Aggregated Source: Shanghai Daily: Business

FORD Motor Co is recalling 465,000 2013 models to check for fuel tank leaks that could result in a fire. The automaker said it won't have enough replacement parts for all owners until September.

Models include the 2013 Ford Fusion, Flex, Explorer, Taurus, Interceptor Sedan and Interceptor Utility as well as Lincoln MKZ, MKS and MKT.

Ford said a fuel delivery module in the tank could leak and that it had received 600 consumer complaints as of March 31.

"While a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire, there have been no reports of fires (and) we are not aware of any accidents or injuries attributed to this condition," Ford said in a statement yesterday.

The recall involves 420,000 vehicles in the US, Canada and Mexico and the rest overseas. It's another blow for the Fusion, which was redesigned last fall and is one of Ford's best-selling models, but has been recalled several times.
