WASHINGTON — Ford is recalling 19,106 2013 Ford Fusions because of a headlamp problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Ford has ordered a delivery stop on the vehicles until the headlights are replaced.

"The affected vehicles may not have had the low beam headlamp projector coating properly cured during its manufacturing process," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "An improperly cured projector coating will become hazy through operation, over time, reducing the brightness of the low-beam lamp. This may decrease driver visibility and increase the risk of a vehicle crash."

Ford told federal safety regulators that as of November 9, 2012, there are no known reports of accidents or injuries related to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built from February 3, 2012 through October 20, 2012.

Ford dealers will replace the headlamp assembly. The recall is expected to begin on December 10. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Edmunds says: Parts are available in this recall, so it's a problem you should address next week if you own one of the affected 2013 Ford Fusions.
