Every time I turn around there’s another recall. Today’s recall involves nearly half a million Ford Maverick and Ford Bronco Sport models. Because this Ford recall is so big, you will need to check if your Ford Maverick or Ford Bronco Sport is involved.

Ford Recall due to Ford Maverick and Ford Bronco Sport battery issues

This massive Ford Recall involves 456,565 Ford Maverick and Ford Bronco Sport models because a battery issue may lead to the loss of power. The recall included 2022 – 2024 Bronco Sport SUVs and 2022 – 2023 Maverick trucks.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an unexpectedly low 12-volt battery charge may cause some electrical accessories such as the hazard lights to improperly function.

Also, the vehicles may lose power. Either way, this issue will increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
