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.
