MADISON (WKOW) – Ford is recalling some of its 2012 Edge vehicles due to potential fuel line problems.
There is a concern that the fuel line could leak and potentially cause a fire. The problem is caused by a crack in the fuel line. If there was a crack, the smell of gas would probably be noticeable and the fuel leaks might also appear.
The recall affects about 5,500 vehicles. The Edge is a midsized SUV, and the affected vehicles have 2-liter engines.
Ford blamed faulty manufacturing by a parts supplier. Ford will notify owners to take their vehicles to a dealer and it will do any necessary repairs for free. Ford said it's aware of 12 cases of fuel leaks. No accidents, injuries or fires have been reported.
