Ford set to recall Crown Victoria cruisers
The Associated Press
DETROIT-- Ford Motor Co. next week will begin recalling as many as 109,664 Crown Victoria police cars because cracks can develop in their steel wheels that could cause rapid air loss in tires during high-speed pursuits.
The recall affects certain 2003-2005 models, but the cracks have been reported in only a small percentage of the wheels. The wheels previously were covered by an extended warranty program, Daniel C. Smith, Ford's associate director for safety assurance, said in a letter dated last Thursday to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
