The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Ford's (F) Crown Victoria police cars following three complaints that part of the steering column can separate and cause loss of control. There have been no reported accidents or injuries. Separately, Ford is recalling 5,500 2012 Edge SUVs, due to concerns that the fuel line could leak and cause a fire.

    Those items are not as bad as a drunk “on duty” cop crashing one into a bunch of stopped motorcycles killing and injuring innocent people in Indianapolis!

     

    (the steering wheel did not come off, the bottle cap did)

    Its nice to know Ford is taking such good care of its customers. We have many Crown Victoria's in the area and increasing #'s of Edge's.

    I wasn't aware that Crown Vics featured any control to start with.

    The old Lincoln Continentals, built on the Crown Vic chassis, were well known for "same day" steering.

     

    So what happens to the cop in Indianapolis? Early retirement at $150k/yr pension? That's a strong, wide and inviolate blue line you are attempting to cross there, DT001.
