Scariest recall ever? Steering wheel in your Ford can detach while driving

No one likes to lose control. No one likes feeling helpless. It would appear as though a scary large number of 2014-2018 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ owners, as in several dozens, have found themselves with an unresponsive steering wheel in their hands or a steering wheel in their lap.

A massive recall affecting 1.4 million of the aforementioned cars has been issued by Ford. Out of that number, exactly 62,479 are on Canadian soil. Ford has acknowledged that “potentially loose steering wheel bolts” could “result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column.” Apparently, tightening them does not solve the issue.

Some of the stories are harrowing. If you’re into horror while driving, you can search through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) defect complaint database by entering “Ford Fusion” in your search.

This recall is not helping Ford’s current spotty quality record. Late last year, Ford issued a recall related to faulty door latches that could cause doors to swing open while driving.
