The Problem : The National Highway Traffic safety Administration explains that a separation of a front lower control arm rear attaching bracket could result in a lower control arm separation. "A separation of both front subframe rear body mounts may result in separation of the steering intermediate shaft. In other words, you could lose control of the steering and crash.

The Fix : Ford will inspect the affected parts and make relevant repairs. The recall is expected to begin on February 14.
