Government Warns Ford Owners About Recalled Vehicles

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government is warning the owners of about
4.6 million recalled Ford vehicles to immediately bring their cars
and trucks into dealerships to disconnect faulty cruise control
switch systems that have been linked to engine fires.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued the
consumer advisory to the owners of certain Ford, Lincoln and
Mercury sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, vans and passenger
cars.

About 9.6 million Ford Motor Co. vehicles have been recalled and
about 5 million have been fixed. NHTSA said they have received
about 60 complaints of engine fires in the Ford vehicles since
August 2007.

A Ford spokesman says they support the action to eliminate the
risk of fire.
