Ford Motor Company is recalling 1,827 model year 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles equipped with high intensity discharge (HID) headlights.

The headlights on the affected vehicles may have been built with incorrect lenses, adversely affecting the turn signal visibility as well as not being properly marked. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

Reduced turn signal visibility to other drivers and pedestrians can increase the risk of a crash.

The Lincoln Continental vehicles included in this recall were all manufactured between June 14, 2016 and September 23, 2016.

Ford will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will inspect the headlights, replacing them as necessary, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin on November 7, 2016.

For additional information, owners cab contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.

Ford's reference number for this recall is 16C15.
