What are Vehicle Health Alerts?

Vehicle Health Alerts (VHA) uses data from your vehicle to provide you with updates on your vehicle's health. The Lincoln Way®* App collects vehicle diagnostic data and displays vehicle health notifications.

They will provide information about your:

  • Powertrain.
  • Brakes and suspensions.
  • Restraints and driver assistance.
  • Checks, fluids, and filters.

Each VHA will tell you:

  • What the alert means.
  • The level of severity.
  • Actions or next steps required.

Note: Recalls and Customer Satisfaction Programs will also appear on the Lincoln Way App for non-connected vehicles.
