Ford recalls vehicles for defective electronic throttles in China
The recall involves 610 imported 2011 Edge models manufactured between Aug. 9, 2010 and Oct. 27, 2010, the State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement.
Ford said the defective electronic throttles may send the vehicles into failure mode and limit engine speed, resulting in engine failure in extreme situations and posing safety risks.
The recall started on March 25, and the company promised to replace defective electronic throttles free of charge. ■
