Feds Warn Ford Owners About Recalled Vehicles

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government wants owners of about 5 million recalled Ford vehicles to bring their cars and trucks to dealerships to repair a cruise control switch system that has been tied to engine fires.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a consumer advisory Tuesday to owners of certain unrepaired Ford, Lincoln and Mercury sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, vans and passenger cars who have not responded to previous recalls.

The government said about 12 million vehicles have been part of the recall and nearly 5 million still have not been fixed. A similar warning was issued in February but officials said the rate of the vehicles being repaired have declined.

A Ford spokesman says the company supports the government's efforts.
