  3. 1999 Ford Taurus SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS NHTSA Campaign #04V332000

    • Date Announced: JULY 15, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 899,060

    Summary: On certain passenger vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia, the front coil springs could fracture due to corrosion associated with salt used on the roadways during the winter. A fractured spring could move past the spring seat and contact a front tire.

    Consequence: If this occurs, the tire may rupture resulting in a rapid air loss, which could result in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will install protective spring shields. In addition, Ford is extending the warranty coverage of the front coil springs in all other states, for fracture only, up to 10 years of service or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first. If the vehicle has already accumulated more than 150,000 miles, this coverage will last until July 31, 2005. If either front coil spring fractures, dealers will replace both front springs at no charge to the owner. An interim notice was sent to owners on August 2, 2004. Parts are now available for the 2000-2001 my vehicles and owners were sent a letter on January 10, 2005, advising them to bring in their vehicles for repair parts are expected to be available for the 1999 my vehicles by the end of February 2005 and owners of these vehicles will be notified then. Owners should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V332000 »

  4. 1999 Ford Taurus SEAT BELTS:FRONT:ANCHORAGE NHTSA Campaign #99V250000

    • Date Announced: SEPTEMBER 20, 1999
    • Vehicles Affected: 25,306

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The seat belt retractor may have a pin shaft in the switchable ELR/ALR mechanism that is incorrectly formed. In some circumstances, the switching mechanism could become nonfunctional, preventing the seat belt webbing from being extracted from the retractor. It is also possible that malfunction of the mechanism could prevent the belt from being switched into the ALR mode. The ELR mechanism is not affected by this condition.

    Consequence: If the mechanism malfunctions and does not allow the webbing to be extracted, the lap and shoulder belt could not be worn by a vehicle occupant. In the event that the mechanism does not allow the ALR mode to be engaged, the operator may be unable to properly install a child seat in that seating position.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the lap and shoulder belt assemblies. Assemblies with Julian date codes of 200 through 223 are suspect and will be replaced. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #99V250000 »
