The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is expanding an investigation into floor mats that interfere with pedals in Ford, Mercury and Lincoln cars. NHTSA was initially investigating 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles. Last month, it said it also would look at those 2008 and 2009 models and the Lincoln MKZ. NHTSA has gotten 52 complaints of accelerator pedals getting trapped by unsecured or stacked floor mats. No injuries have been reported. The investigation now covers around 480,000 vehicles. NHTSA investigations often lead to recalls. As you know, NHTSA said not all 2010 models are affected, since Ford introduced new pedals during that year.
