FORD-POLICE CAR RECALL
(2007-03-07)
(wgvu) - FORD NEXT WEEK WILL BEGIN RECALLING NEARLY
110-THOUSAND CROWN VICTORIA POLICE CARS DUE TO POSSIBLE WHEEL
CRACKS.
FEDERAL SAFETY OFFICIALS SAY THE CRACKS CAN DEVELOP IN STEEL
WHEELS THAT COULD CAUSE RAPID AIR LOSS DURING HIGH-SPEED PURSUITS.
THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION SAYS THE
CRACKS CAN FORM NEAR THE WELD LINE THAT CONNECTS THE RIM TO THE
WHEEL DISK.
THE RECALL AFFECTS CERTAIN 2003-THROUGH-2005 MODELS.
A FORD SPOKESMAN SAYS POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE REPORTED TWO
CRASHES WHICH THEY ATTRIBUTED TO THE WHEEL PROBLEM, BUT FORD IS
DISPUTING THOSE CLAIMS. HE SAYS NO ONE WAS HURT IN THE CRASHES.
