Center for Auto Safety demands Ford issue full recall of Explorers

The Center for Auto Safety wants Ford to issue a full recall for all Explorers made between 2011 and 2017, writing in part in a statement, “With something this potentially dangerous, the responsible step is a full recall and if Ford will not do it, NHTSA should step in.”

The Center for Auto Safety is demanding a recall of Ford vehicles that could affect 1.3 million cars.

Responding to consumer concerns about exhaust fumes, Ford offered to inspect and repair Explorer SUVs at no cost to owners.

Ford maintains the vehicles are safe, but said it’s making the repairs available in response to customer concerns about exhaust odors and carbon monoxide.

“Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day,” Ford spokesman Mike Levine said.

Now, the automotive giant is getting pressured to do more.

The Center for Auto Safety wants Ford to issue a full recall for all Explorers made between 2011 and 2017, writing in part in a statement, “With something this potentially dangerous, the responsible step is a full recall and if Ford will not do it, NHTSA should step in.”
