Ford recall affecting 465,000 of their 2013 model year vehicles is now underway. The U.S. auto manufacturer wants to check for fuel leaks, which could cause fire. According to the New York Daily News on June 3, 2013, no fires have been reported due to this particular issue.

"Models include the 2013 Ford Fusion, Flex, Explorer, Taurus, Interceptor Sedan and Interceptor Utility, as well as the 2013 Lincoln MKZ, MKS and MKT."

The connector from the fuel tank to the fuel line is the culprit according to Ford. Customers reported seeing gas on the ground or at least smelling it. Unfortunately Ford says that there will not have enough replacement parts to go around until September 2013.

There have been at east 600 customer complaints filed about this leak through March 31. 420,000 of the affected vehicles are in the U.S., while the rest are located overseas.

Ford is located in Dearborn, Michigan and was founded in 1903. They also own stakes in Mazda and Aston Martin. Ford is number two in the U.S. and ranked fifth in the world based upon auto sales.
