DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1,274 2015 Lincoln MKC SUVs because bubbles in the windshield could affect driver visibility, the company told Edmunds on Friday.
"Certain manufacturing conditions in the windshield supplier's process may have allowed air to be trapped between the layers of glass," Ford said in a statement. "A windshield with trapped air may develop air bubbles when it is exposed to elevated temperatures.
"The presence of bubbles may affect driver visibility, which could have a detrimental effect on the safe operation of the vehicle."
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries as a result of the defect.
The affected MKCs were built at the Louisville Assembly Plant from August 20, 2013 through June 6, 2014.
Lincoln dealers will replace the windshield in the affected vehicles. The recall will begin on August 11. Owners can contact Lincoln at 1-800-521-4140.
No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker tells consumers that if they see bubbles in the windshield of their 2015 MKC they should bring it into the dealership immediately for the repair.
