Steering Defect Leads to New Ford Recall

The New York Times reports that the National Highway Transportation Administration is investigating a power steering issue that could affect 938,000 2010-2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans, noting the company has already recalled 1.1 million other vehicles due to the defect. The Times reports that NHTSA “has received 508 complaints from owners, including four reports of accidents that occurred when the power steering assist suddenly failed, requiring ‘increased steering efforts that contributed to a loss of control and crash.’” If you or a loved one has been injured due to mechanical problem with a vehicle, contact Donald A. Shapiro, Ltd. today to discuss your legal rights.
