Ford recalls near 130,000 Fusion and Mercury Milan models

Ford Fusion

FoMoCo said Friday that it is recalling a total of 130,000 Fusion and Mercury Milan sedan due to concerns that the wheel studs could crack and cause wheels to fall off. Pretty scary stuff here. The recall consists of 2010 and 2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan models with 17-inch steel wheels- a total of 128,616 units are being recalled.

Ford is also recalling 2,940 steel wheels that were sold to dealers.

The company said that the steel wheel mounting pads may have been faulty and the wheel mounting face on rear brake discs could not have been attached properly.

In January, NHTSA opened an investigation into 317,000 Ford Fusion and Mercury milan units.
