Ford Motor Company's brand-new family crossovers, the 2011 Ford Edge and the 2011 Lincoln MKX, are being recalled.

Only 71 vehicles in all are affected by the recall, issued earlier this week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the NHTSA, some Edges and MKXs were incorrectly programmed, so that the locking liftgate is disabled.

As a result, drivers may not be able to lock the tailgate with either the lock buttons inside the car, or on the fob.

The recall will begin by November 1, 2010. Ford will make repairs for free.

Owners of the 2011 Edge and 2011 MKX can check the NHTSA's Web site for more information on the recall campaign, which carries the ID #10V516000. Owners also can call Ford directly at 1-866-436-7332 to determine if their vehicle is included in the recall.

2011 Ford Edge, Lincoln MKX get first recall

That was quick. Ford has issued a recall for a whopping 71 2011 Lincoln MKX and 2011 Ford Edge models due to rear latches that are unable to be locked. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the locks weren't programmed properly from the factory, and as such, the rear gate can't be locked by any of the buttons inside of the vehicle or even the key fob.

NHTSA says that the problem violates the agency's motor vehicle safety standard number 206 pertaining to locks and door retention components.

Ford will reprogram the locks free of charge, and the recall is set to get under way starting on November 1. Owners can contact Ford or the NHTSA to learn more about having their vehicles repaired.
