Transit Connect vehicles of the 2011 through 2012 model years are being recalled by the Ford Motor Company. Over 16,000 units are possibly affected by a wiper blade riveting defect that could lead the windshield wiper to become completely removed from the vehicles. In times of inclement weather, this would necessarily impede a driver’s ability to see the roadway. On August 13, Ford will set about getting in touch with owners, and dealers have been instructed to provide free wiper arm replacement.
