The problem involves missing welds in the windshield’s header portion of the body sheet metal. Ford says that this may reduce the lateral structural integrity of the car. Owners of these vehicles may also be at risk of injury due to this problem if there were a side-impact collision.
The auto manufacturer states there have been no reports of injuries or collisions where this may have been a factor.
The problem has been linked to Ford’s Oakville, Ontario, Canada assembly plant for vehicles built on February 21 and 22 in 2017.
The vehicles are located in the United States (84), Canada (26) and there is one in Mexico.
The recall reference number is 17C05.
Owners may take their vehicles to Ford dealerships for a free repair of the windshield headers.
