2014 Ford Edge Recalled In China Over Link Shaft Bracket Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select units of the 2014 Ford Edge in China over an issue with the link shaft bracket that may cause a loss of motive power or a loss of park function, which could in turn lead to unintended vehicle movement. The recall is set to begin on February 22nd, 2021.

The defect: affected models are equipped with a link shaft bracket that could fracture due to certain vehicle vibrations after long-term use.

The hazards: the affected vehicles may lose power while driving or unintentionally move while parked. Either scenario increases the risk of an injury or a crash.

A similar recall was issued in the U.S. in November 2020 for the Ford Edge as well as the Ford Explorer and Taurus.

Components: link shaft bracket.

Affected vehicles: 2014 Ford Edge vehicles built at the Ford Oakville Assembly plant from November 1st, 2014 to December 23rd, 2014.
