Ford Motor Company is recalling 3,857 model year 2020 Explorers and Lincoln Aviators.
Over time, the protective sleeve on the vapor fuel line may chafe through the plastic liquid fuel line and cause a fuel leak.
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install a longer protective sleeve on the liquid fuel line, as necessary, free of charge.
Owners will be notified of the safety risk with an interim letter on January 20, 2020. A second notice will be sent once parts are available, expected late in the first quarter of 2020.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 19S49.
