Ford America has announced that 4.5 million other cars are added to the list of already recalled vehicles because of a faulty cruise control switch which may cause fire, installed on 14.3 million cars over past ten years! This is the largest cumulative recall in the history of Ford. Apparently investigations by NHTSA proved that these switches, which are made by Texas Instruments could leak internally and if overheated, set the car on fire!
Here’s the list of infected cars and their model year, so if you got one make sure to visit the nearest Ford dealer ASAP:
1995-2003 Ford Windstar; 2000-2003 Ford Excursion diesel; 1993-1997 and 1999-2003 Ford F-Super Duty diesel; 1992-2003 Ford Econoline; 1995-2002 Ford Explorer; 1995-2002 Mercury Mountaineer; 1995-1997 and 2001-2003 Ford Ranger; and 1994 Ford F35 Motorhome vehicles.
