On March 29, Ford issued a compliance recall of 111 certain 2017 Ford Edge models for missing windshield header welds.
“Affected vehicles may have been built with missing welds in the windshield header portion of the body sheet metal. Vehicles with an improperly welded windshield header may have reduced lateral structural integrity, potentially increasing the risk of injury in a side-impact crash,” according to the company.
The car maker is unaware of any accidents or incidents related to the defect and has identified vehicles manufactured at Oakville Assembly Plant, Feb. 21-22, 2017, as the only affected models.
Ford will contact owners, and dealers will correct the defect free of charge.
