2010-2011 Ford Fusion and Mercy Milan Sedans Recalled Over Fears that Wheels Could Fall Off

The Blue Oval has issued a new recall on certain 2010-2011MY Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans that are equipped with 17-inch steel wheels because the wheel studs may start fracturing and split over time, potentially leading to one or more wheels falling off the car. No other types of wheels are affected by this recall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [NHTSA] said that the recall affects 128,616 Ford Fusions and Mercury Millans built from April 1 to 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through November 13, 2010.

Ford said that it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.

According to the automaker, dealers will replace the wheel lug nuts on all four wheels while also inspecting the rear-brake disc surface for flatness and replace the discs as necessary. The safety recall will begin in January 24, 2012.
