LINCOLN MK C2015
Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles manufactured August 20, 2013, to September 9, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Push-to Start/Stop (PTS) button that is located at the bottom of the shift transmission controls may inadvertently be pushed, causing the engine to shut off.
If the PTS switch is inadvertently pressed, the vehicle may stop unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a crash with the vehicle turned off, the air bags and seat belt restaints may not function as intended, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the PTS switch and reprogram the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 23, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 14S29.
Just curious, how many miles on your MKC when you took it in for service? Also, other than an oil change did u have anything else done, ie tire rotation, etc. I have 7200 miles and my computer says I still have 31% oil life! I am of old school of an oil change at 6,000 miles.
I only had 4,100 miles on it, but the dealer kept sending me e-mails to bring it in for the 7,500 mile service. I picked the car up on Aug.12th. Yes they rotated the tires and did a multi point inspection.
I got no argument from them on NOT doing the s/s button change.
