Ford Motor Co. on Tuesday said it’s attempting to fix about 29,000 2015 Edge crossovers due to the possibility of water entering the cabin.

The Dearborn automaker has not issued a formal recall, but has notified about 19,000 customers with vehicles built at its Oakville Assembly Plant in Canada prior to April 28. Dealers have been notified to inspect and fix an additional 10,000 vehicles still on lots before they sell them.

Water could seep through a body seam in the cabin, and dealers can fix the issue by sealing the seam. Ford said the issue could take about a day to fix, but would take more time if the vehicle has gotten wet.

The Edge went on sale in March.
