Ford has recalled 2007 Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego sedans to repair a fuel tank that could leak in a crash. The nearly 3,000 sedans may have bad welds where the fuel filler neck meets the fuel tank, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. In a severe rear impact, the bad weld could fail and cause a fire. The recalled cars were built from September 5th to September 11, 2006. Some may have already been fixed because if the leak occurs, it can cause fuel odor, visible leakage or set off the emissions warning light. Ford will reimburse owners who paid for the fix. They can make a claim when they get the recall letter starting August 15th.
