Ford Motor Co. announced in mid-March that it was recalling nearly 1.4 million model year 2014 to 2018 Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs because bolts that secured the steering wheels in those vehicles have been shown to come loose, and in some cases dangerously so.
So far, the problem has been responsible for causing two accidents and one injury, but many others are expected.
The recalled vehicles were manufactured in plants in Michigan and Mexico between 2013 and 2018.
The recall by the nation’s second-largest automaker came five months after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration launched a probe into the safety of Fusions after receiving reports that the steering wheels became loose. In one case, the wheel completely detached. The driver of that vehicle had reported the wheel had been wobbly for two weeks before falling off during a trip in Georgia.
