THE VEHICLE: Ford is recalling about 19,000 brand-new Fusion midsize cars from the 2013 model year.
THE PROBLEM: Reflectors in the low-beam headlights can become hazy over time and reduce the brightness. It's the second recall in a week for the Fusion and the sixth recall of a new Ford vehicle in the past five months. The problem was discovered by Ford's internal testing and was caused by improper manufacturing of the headlamp by a parts supply company.
THE SOLUTION: Ford will replace the headlights for free to fix the problem. Owners will get notices in the mail starting next week.
