Ford Recalls About 1.4 Mln Vehicles In North America

Following an NHTSA investigation, Ford has issued a recall for around 1.3 million 2014-2018 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans that pose a risk of steering wheel detachment.

Ford says steering wheel bolts can loosen over time. The company says it knows of two crashes and one injury caused by the problem.

2014-17 Fusions built in Flat Rock, Mich., from August 6, 2013, to February 29, 2016.

He is now serving a lifetime prison sentence for plotting the murder of the wall street journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002. Omerta looks like another winning role for Rao, who is has showing quite a new range for himself as an actor here.

A second recall involves 2013-2016 Focus vehicles equipped with a 1.0- or 1.6-liter engine and manual gearbox.

Ford said dealers will replace the bolts with longer ones "with more robust thread engagement and larger nylon patch placed properly for proper torque retention- at no cost to customers".

When driving a vehicle, the steering wheel is only expected to move in a rotational fashion, either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Ford said it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this recall.
