Ford Recalls 1,175 2022 Mach-E EVs
Ford is once again facing a recall regarding its all-electric Mach-E model. This time, the campaign affects a limited number of 2022 units. It is necessary because of a potential defect related to the rear axle.
On the affected units, an incorrect positioning in the lathe during the first turning operation at a supplier resulted in a substandard wall thickness on the right rear half shaft.
