A failure to properly affix steering wheels has triggered a recall of 1.38 million Ford and Lincoln cars in North America.
Ford Motor said Wednesday that it is issuing a safety recall for the 2014 through 2018 model-year Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans. The recall comes after officials discovered that the cars have "potentially loose steering wheel bolts that could result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column," Ford said in a statement. The recall adds to Ford’s mounting quality issues.
