Auto Correct: Transmissions
Sometimes we give tips and tricks about dealing with your vehicles - for the regular driver. Today is not one of those shows. We’re talking transmissions. What do you want to know?
- model-year 2014-15 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans and model-year 2015 Ford Mustang coupes are being recalled for brake lights and rollaway risk. To resolve the problem, dealers will replace the brake-pedal bumper and clutch-pedal bumper for free. Owners will be notified starting March 3. Those with further questions can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 (Ford’s number for this recall is 22S02), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
You can find out if your car has a past recall by going to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and inputting your VIN number. Or find their SaferCar app.
In the news: bad weather results in road closures. But modern navigation software simply doesn’t take no for an answer, and so Google Maps — among other navigation companies — has sent drivers down sketchy, dangerous paths to reach their intended destinations. If you are traveling this winter please make sure you have a paper map and double check any reroutes to ensure you aren’t being guided to logging trails.
