1. Ford is recalling a problem that can cause a sudden loss of power while driving or an unexpected rollaway while parking. Neither of these things are ideal.

  2. Ford has issued a small but important electrical recall for 87 vehicles with improperly secured power supply cables.

    The cables are at the starters and alternators and the unsecured connections could cause electrical arcs. Those arcs could easily start fires.

    There are so many recalls these days that it’s no longer shocking when brand new vehicles get called back for repairs. But it really makes you wonder wire these automakers can’t get their act together.

    Puns aside, find out if your vehicle is affected here. It only takes a minute, so watt are you waiting for?

  3. The 2015–16 Edge has been recalled because Ford gave 58 of you the wrong ABS software.

    Ford says the recalled 2015-16 Ford Edge SUVs were brought in for service repairs and were loaded with the wrong anti-lock braking system (ABS) software.

    So how much harm could a little mistake like that do? Well, for starters it can disable the vehicle's electronic stability control, engine torque control, and traction control. Oh, also – also! – the electronic parking brake light and the ability to release the parking brake entirely.

    It's like the Beach Boys said in that song, "and we'll have fun, fun, fun, until Ford gives me the wrong software and my car loses all control". Or something like that

    (I'm not good with lyrics).
