Anybody have a newer recalled Ford Fusion or Mercury Milan sedan?
Does the January 24th notification to owners make you leery of driving it until then? FOMOCO announced the recall of 2010 and 2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall affects 2010 and 2011 models built from April 1 through April 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through November 13, 2010.
The recall announcement states that while the car is in use, "multiple stud fractures could occur at the wheel location, and the operator may experience vehicle vibration and/or wheel separation, increasing the risk of a crash."
Ford will notify owners of the vehicles included in the recall beginning the week of January 24, 2012. Owners will have to make an appointment with a Ford dealership for a rear brake disc inspection, and have the wheel lug nuts replaced on all four wheels. Owners may call the Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332.
