Ford Motor Company Issues Safety Compliance Recall

DEARBORN, Mich., April 2, 2021 – Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall related to the rearview camera on select 2020-21 Lincoln Aviator vehicles.

This action affects 34,975 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 3,053 in Canada and 379 in Mexico. Affected vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Oct. 19, 2018, to Dec. 7, 2020.
