Headliner Recall

So I heard somewhere that there's a recall with the headliners in the 2013's. It's because they were coming apart and/or becoming wrinkley and stuff. I looked at mine and mine was getting that way and also had some brown spots on it. I took it into the dealership and they said yup, it falls into the recall standards. So, I'm getting it replaced for free.

Check your headliner.

I don't know if its an official recall. The have a TSB on the headliners so if you complain about it, they will replace it. I'm getting it replaced on mine for a second time now.

I can try but I doubt they will turn out clear.

Basically, above the pillar between the front and rear window on the passenger side (on the headliner) I have some brown spots and right above that where it curves into the roof it's starting to wrinkle some. I also have some brown spots around the opening to my sunroof. I'll take some pictures when I get home but if they don't turn out well because of lighting issues or something, I'm not going to post them.

This is correct, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) (I believe that is the correct title) for the issue. It is not a recall because it is not a safety issue. But anyone who has the problem can mention the TSB and Ford will have to determine if they fall within the criteria for replacement per the service bulletin.

headliner

I pointed out the headliner to my dealership today and they are sending photos to ford for the replacement headliner. I started noticing the spots two weeks after I bought my fusion I'm a little bummed that it needs to be changed already.

By the way, here's a few photos of what it looks like:

Looks like a bad distribution of glue during the manufacturing process.
