Flammable Fords Still on the Road, 8.4 million

Federal safety regulators at NHTSA just released a warning that there are still about 8.4 million Fords on the road that are subject to the "it can burn up at any time" recalls of 14 million Fords between 1999 and 2009. If you know anyone with one of them, tell them it's dangerous and to get their Ford to a Ford dealer to be checked out.

We've written about these flaming Fords before, like the one that burned down Peter Romans home in Ohio that burned his wife and two children to death. Or, in the same blog post, we talked about the homeowner in Minnesota whose 2000 Ford Expedition was parked in the garage and, all on its own, burned down the house.

Well, even though millions were recalled to fix the defect in the cruise control system in millions of these Fords, many owners had sold their Ford to someone else and many ownership records at Ford were simply out of date. With no way to reach them, and with over 8 million Fords not fixed, federal safety officials decided to release another press announcement to warn the public.

We went to the local Lowe's one weekend last summer when the announcement came over the loudspeaker that anyone who owned a Ford pickup truck parked out front should go out to their vehicle right away because it was on fire. Sure enough, when we came out of the store, there was a fire truck parked near a Ford truck, still putting out the engine compartment fire that apparently erupted while the owner was inside shopping.

This danger is real. And it can be deadly. And there is no advance warning. It just bursts into flames.

The only way to know for sure that your Ford had the recall repair done is to take it to a Ford dealer and ask. They shouldn't charge you either.
