Ford (F) Recalling 19,000 Fusions To Fix Headlight Problem

 December 07, 2012 01:32 PM
 


Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) is recalling around 19,000 of its 2013 Fusion vehicles to fix a headlight issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The latest announcement comes just a week after Ford announced a voluntary safety recall of 2013 Ford Escape SE and SEL models after reports of engines overheating resulting in engine fires while the engine is running.

The company is recalling certain model year 2013 Fusion vehicles, manufactured from February 3, 2012, through October 20, 2012, for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

The affected vehicles may not have had the low beam headlamp projector coating properly cured during its manufacturing process, according to documents posted on the NHTSA website.

An improperly cured projector coating will become hazy through operation, over time, reducing the brightness of the low-beam lamp. This may decrease driver visibility and increase the risk of a vehicle crash, NHTSA noted.

The recall of 19,106 model year 2013 Fusion vehicles is expected to begin on December 10, 2012.

On Friday, Ford shares added 2.09 percent to trade at $11.48.
