Ford is recalling 5,499 model-year 2012 versions of the Edge SUV due to problems with the fuel line, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from Sept. 10, 2010, through Oct. 31, 2011, and are equipped with 2.0-liter engines. You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.
In these vehicles, a component of the fuel line housing could crack, resulting in a leak. This could lead to a fire.
