Despite only just starting deliveries, Lincoln’s all-important MKZ sedan has just received its first recall notice.

Lincoln is recalling approximately 500 of its 2013 MKZ sedans across the U.S. and Canada due to an issue where exposed wiring in the engine bay could cause a potential electrical shock or corrosion.

Insulation has been fitted to the wiring but may crack in freezing temperatures.

Lincoln states that there have been no reports of owners being injured due to the issue.

Lincoln is in the process of notifying owners affected by the latest recall. They will be asked to visit their nearest Lincoln dealer, which will replace the suspect insulation and wiring, free of charge.

For further information you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 or Lincoln at 1-866-436-7332.

Lincoln’s MKZ, which was originally scheduled to be launched at the start of the year, ending up being delayed slightly due to a post-assembly quality inspection for the initial run of MKZs built. That created quite a backlog at Ford’s Hermosillo, Mexico plant, which lacked the resources to handle the quantity of post-build inspections necessary, which meant the cars needed to be shipped to the U.S. where the inspection process could be completed.

Hopefully there won’t be any additional setbacks for the MKZ, which Lincoln is pinning its hopes on for its resurgence in the U.S. as well as in new markets.
