Ford Recalling More than 350,000 Vehicles
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Sep 04, 2013 in Uncategorized
Ford has announced the recall of 355,000 Crown Victorias, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars. The recall includes vehicles that were manufactured between 2005 and 2011.
The voluntary recall is due to severe corrosion that could affect the steering column and thus loss of steering control.
According to reports, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration started looking into the problem last year when cases of the steering going out on some police cars were reported. The recall affects vehicles that were sold and registered in more than 22 states.
Ford is currently notifying dealers and owners of the vehicles affected by the recall. The recall will begin in mid-October. Those who own the vehicle models affected may also contact Ford and set up an appointment to have their vehicle inspected.
Drivers affected may feel that their steering has become delayed, stiff, and binding. Although no car accidents or injuries have been reported, it is important that vehicle owners of affected models get their cars inspected as soon as possible.
