DETROIT (AP) – Ford is recalling more than 128,000 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans from the 2010 and 2011 model years because the wheels can fall off the cars.
The recall affects only cars with 17-inch steel wheels built from April 1, 2009 through April 30, 2009, and from Dec. 1, 2009 through Nov. 13, 2010.READ MORE: Standoff Between Snakes & Young Southlake Girl Ends With 'Daring' Drainage Pipe Rescue
Federal regulators say that bolts holding the wheels on can fracture, causing a vibration. If the vibration is ignored, the wheels can separate from the car.READ MORE: 'They're Innocent People, Man' Phone Call Shows Brother Pleading With Colleyville Synagogue Hostage-Taker
