Ford has recalled 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. According to NHTSA bolts holding the wheels on can fracture, causing a vibration. If the vibration is ignored, the wheels can separate from the car. Ford says it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem. Dealers will replace the lug nuts on all four wheels and check the rear disc brake surface. The recall is expected to begin around January 24th.
