Make(s):
FORD, LINCOLN, MERCURY
Model(s):
FUSION, MILAN, MKZ, ZEPHYR
Year(s):
2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011
Manufacturer:
Ford Motor Company
NHTSA ID:
14E028000
Recall Date:
May 29th, 2014
Units Affected:
82,579

Affected Component: Equipment.

Summary: Ford motor company (ford) is recalling certain all weather driver side accessory floor mats sold for use in model year 2006-2011 ford fusion and mercury milan, 2006 lincoln zephyr, and 2007-2011 lincoln mkz vehicles manufactured november 9, 2007, through october 31, 2010. The affected floor mats may move and possibly interfere with the accelerator pedal. .

Conequence: The floor mat could shift such that it could interfere with the accelerator pedal, preventing its return to an idle position, which could result in unintended vehicle speeds, increasing the risk of a crash. .

Remedy: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install new replacement mats, free of charge. The recall began in july 2014. Owners may contact ford's customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14s07. Note: vehicles built after october 31, 2010, while potentially equipped with the same floor mats, are equipped with a brake over accelerator (boa) feature that prevents simultaneous accelerator and brake application, allowing the vehicle to be safely stopped by pressing firmly and steadily on the brake pedal. .

Notes: Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).
