NEWS: Ford is recalling certain 2005-2011 Ford Crown Victoria (including Crown Victoria Police Interceptors), Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car vehicles
Report Receipt Date: AUG 29, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V385000 
Component(s): STEERING 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 355,000   

SEPTEMBER 2013 - Ford is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Ford Crown Victoria (including Crown Victoria Police Interceptors), Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car vehicles. The affected vehicles are currently registered or were originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft which may cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate. If the lower bearing separates, the vehicle may experience a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford will notify owners and dealers will replace the lower intermediate shaft, free of charge. The upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing will be inspected to identify any damage that may have occurred as a result of lower intermediate shaft corrosion, and repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed. The recall is expected to begin October 21, 2013. Ford's recall number is 13S08. Customers located in non-corrosion states who have concerns regarding their steering will have a one-time option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired. Owners of these vehicles should contact Ford directly about these vehicles. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NEWS:  Ford Recalls 110,000 Police Vehicles to Fix Wheels

March 7, 2006 (Bloomberg) -- Ford Motor Co., the largest maker of U.S. police vehicles, is recalling 109,664 high-performance Crown Victoria Police Interceptor sedans to fix wheels that may crack and cause flat tires.

The affected cars were from the 2003 to 2005 model years and were built in St. Thomas, Ontario, Ford said in a letter to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is the second of its type since 2003 at Ford, which makes about 80 percent of police vehicles sold in the U.S. Police attributed two crashes to the wheels, which the company disputes, Ford spokesman Dan Jarvis said today in an interview.

``These are the cars that are jumping curbs, making sharp turns at high speed and making very fast pursuits where there's a lot of force produced on the wheels,'' Jarvis said. ``In most cases, the cars can continue driving even if cracks form.''

Jarvis declined to say how much the recall will cost Ford, which won't charge owners for replacement wheels. The Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker is issuing the recall voluntarily and told NHTSA it will begin notifying owners March 12. The recall covers cars built from Oct. 10, 2001, to Dec. 8, 2004, Jarvis said.

Ford hasn't received any reports of injuries related to the latest wheel problem, said Jarvis, who provided no details of the crashes cited by police. Police-pursuit vehicles represent roughly 25 percent of annual production of Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis models.

Earlier Recall

The 2003 recall involved about 30,000 Crown Victorias for a similar wheel problem. The two recalls aren't related, Jarvis said.

Beginning in 2002, the Crown Victoria police vehicle was the subject of a series of lawsuits claiming that the gas tank's placement behind the rear axle made the car vulnerable to fuel- fed fires in high-speed rear-end crashes. Ford later provided police cruisers with fuel-tank shields for extra protection.


NEWS:  Ford Crown Victoria Recall

November 2006  --  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced Ford is recalling 422 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis sedans from the 2007 model year to properly secure the windshield to the body, NHTSA said. Dealers will replace the windshields at no cost to owners.

NEWS: Ford recalls over 225,000 cars

DETROIT (Reuters) - Wed Nov 16, 2005 - Ford Motor Co. .. said on Wednesday it is recalling more than 225,000 vehicles in the United States and Canada, including its flagship Ford Five Hundred sedan and Freestyle wagon, because of fire risks.

Vehicles involved in the recall are from the 2005 model year and include the Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car, Mercury Grand Marquis and Montego sedans, Ford spokeswoman Kristen Kinley said.

Ford is recalling 127,493 Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego sedans and Freestyle wagons because the straps that secure the fuel tank to the vehicle body may break, causing the fuel tank and fuel tank heat shield to drop onto the driveshaft or exhaust system, the automaker and U.S. safety regulators said.

This could cause a fuel leak and result in a fire in these vehicles, according to the Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The automaker is recalling 98,444 Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Grand Marquis sedans because on certain vehicles the battery cable may scrape on an attaching bolt and could lead to a fire.

The recall comes as Ford is trying to stem steep losses in its North American division and to improve the overall quality of its products. It also follows a high-profile recall of some of its best-selling pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles.

Ford recalled nearly 4 million vehicles in September because of the risk of engine fires.
