2014-2015 Transit Connect Recall

Recommended Posts

Two recalls affect Ford Transit Connect vehicles. In the first, 25,597 of the 2014 models are being recalled because the fuel and vapor lines may be incorrectly routed, which could cause a fuel leak and lead to a fire.

The second one affects 92 of the 2015 models because the bracket that holds the fuel filter to the vehicle frame may become detached over time, resulting in knocking sounds or an engine stall, which could increase the risk of a crash.

In the first Transit Connect recall, dealers will inspect the lines and reroute and replace them as needed, Ford said. In the second one, dealers will reinforce the underbody structure if necessary.

Thanks for the info!

I've never actually owned a vehicle new enough to have to worry about recalls before now.

So we will probably be getting a letter at some point to bring the vehicle in.

They don't want to be sued.
