Ford has recently recalled around 5 millions vehicles for faulty cruise control switches. According to a U.S. regulatory agency, these faulty switches may potentially cause a fire at any time.
The recall includes Ford, Lincoln, and Mecury cars and trucks from the years of 1992 to 2004. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that this recall is a part of a previously announced recall to fix approximately 7 million vehicles.
The NHTSA warns that this is a very serious safety risk. Sixty people have reported fires caused by the cruise control switch form August through February of last year. The repair takes very little time and should be made immediately if your car or truck has been listed in the recall, which now covers 12 million vehicles.
