Conequence: The front tire could deflate due to a broken front coil spring contacting the tire, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. .

Remedy: Customers with vehicles that have broken springs are to return their vehicle for spring replacement. Both springs will be replaced even if only one spring is fractured. .

Notes: Ford has decided to provide an extended warranty through the year 2001 for replacement of front springs due to fracture. Owners can contact ford at 1-800-392-3673. .

Manufacturer:
FORD MOTOR COMPANY
NHTSA ID:
98V323000
Recall Date:
n/a
Units Affected:
2,697,000

Affected Component: Structure:frame and members.

Summary: Vehicle description: passenger vehicles originally sold or currently registered in connecticut, delaware, district of columbia, illinois, indiana, iowa, kansas, kentucky, maine, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, minnesota, missouri, nebraska, new hampshire, new jersey, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, rhode island, vermont, virginia, west virgnia, and wisconsin. The rear lower subframe mount plate nut can experience stress corrosion cracking if subjected to long term exposure to road salts. This can result in fracture and loss of the structural integrity of the subframe mount attachment. Detachment of the body mounts at the rear corners of the subframe, which supports the engine and transmission, allows the rear corners of the subframe to drop. .

Conequence: If both rear corners drop, steering would become suddenly very difficult, affecting vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash. .

Remedy: Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts. .

Notes: Note: this recall campaign supercedes recall campaign 93v-106. Owner notification is expected to begin january 18, 1999. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact ford at 1-800-392-3673. Also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236). .
