Ford Recalls 370,000 Vehicles for Steering Problem

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_ae7d519365.jpgPhoto by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- Ford is recalling 370,000 Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car vehicles from the 2005 to 2011 model years. The vehicles must be checked for steering column corrosion that can lead to loss of steering. The recall covers 22 states and the District of Columbia and includes approximately 195,000 Crown Victoria police cars.

The New York Times reports that Ford's recall was prompted by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation earlier this year that found steering problems on the 2005 to 2008 models of the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor.

The states covered in the recall are only those that rely on road salt during the winter. Ford says that owners of the recalled vehicles in other states could also have their vehicles checked and -- if necessary -- repaired by dealers at for free, according to the Times.
