Burn Notice: Ford GT Recalled For Fire Hazard

 Wednesday, October 10, 2018


One of the undoubted highlights of the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s Spring Rally in May was having the opportunity to ride shotgun for quick laps around the Road America racetrack in a Ford GT. They were awful hot, those laps, and we even said that the GT "blazed" around the track. Well, for the handful of owners out there, your Ford GT is now being recalled for a very different, literal kind of blaze.
Ford has issued a recall for around 200 GTs thanks to hydraulic fluid that could leak from valves underneath the rear wing onto the exhaust. The automaker knows of one fire already that occurred in Germany, but to prevent any further flames, the cars should be brought in for a software update. Read on for more details.
