Ford Edge recalled after automaker discovers missing welds in the windshield header areas.

— The 2017 Ford Edge is recalled because about 111 SUVs may have been built without welds in the windshield header portions of the sheet metal.

Those welds are important because the structural integrity can be compromised in a side-impact crash. However, Ford says it doesn't know of any accidents or injuries related to the missing welds.

The Edge SUVs were built February 21 and 22, 2017, with about 84 of those SUVs located in the U.S., 26 in Canada and just one Edge in Mexico.

The recall is expected to begin May 15, 2017. Ford dealers will repair the windshield headers to help protect occupants in a side crash.

Owners who have questions should call 866-436-7332 and refer to recall number 17C05.
