Ford Recalls 1.4 Million Cars for Defective Steering Wheels that Might Fall Off
Ford Motor Company is recalling more than 1.4 million cars in North America because the steering wheel can detach from the steering column and drivers could lose control. The problem is so bad, Ford is warning customers that their steering wheels could come off while they are driving on the road. The flaw has already been linked to two accidents and one injury, with more injuries expected.
