Regular readers of our Lemon Law and Car Fraud Blog will recall that we recently published a post about the biggest auto recalls in U.S. history since the 1970 creation of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
One of the best things about the establishment of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 1970 was that it required automakers to meet safety standards and issue recalls when vehicle defects affect motorist safety.
If you thought your automaker would never steer you wrong - think again. Ford Motor Company issued a recall recently for 1.4 million vehicles due to a risk of steering wheel detachment, according to the Wall Street Journal. The recall affects the 2014-2018 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ midsize cars in North America. If you own a vehicle covered in this recall, it is important to understand your rights as a consumer and how to replace the defective steering wheel.
