Lincoln Motor Company is the luxury vehicle division of the renowned Ford Motor Company, Lincoln is one of the top luxury brands in the United States, often seen as a direct competitor to General Motors’ brilliant Cadillac. The story of this auto company began in 1917, founded by Henry M. Leland, who named the company after the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln was acquired by Ford in 1922.
According to a notice from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Ford has announced a recall of certain models of the 2015 – 2019 Lincoln MKC SUV due to a potential fire hazard. Potential amount affected is 142,734 units. This comes after the discovery that the battery monitor sensor in these vehicles may experience a short-circuit, leading to overheating and, in some cases, causing a fire in the engine compartment whether the vehicle is parked or in motion.
Ford dealerships will address the issue by adding an in-line fuse to the power circuit of the battery monitor sensor, free of charge of course. The company expects to start mailing notice letters on June 26, 2026 to affected owners and they have been urged to contact their nearest dealership to schedule the required repairs.
