Ford Recalls 1.3M Cars for Steering Wheels That May Fall Off

Some 1.38 million Ford and Lincoln cars are being recalled in North America after the automaker said it discovered that steering wheels could potentially “detach” from the vehicles. In a statement, Ford said the cars in question have “potentially loose steering wheel bolts that could result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column.” The auto maker said it found at least two accidents to have occurred due to the defect. The safety recall has been issued for 2014 through 2018 model-year Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs. The company issued a $600 million door-latch recall in October that affected several million vehicles.
