ANNOUNCEMENT: The Car Book 2018 is now online!

Ratings on over 1,000 new & used models going back 5 years, from the Center from Auto Safety. Learn more about The Car Book 2018 here.

The vehicle weight could exceed the maximum load rating for the tire, increasing the risk of premature tire wear or blowout.


Vehicle description: Certain limousines stretched over 60 inches fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS no. 109, "new pneumatic tires, " and no. 110, "tire selection and rims."
Dealers will replace all 5 tires (including the spare tire) with Michelin tires (225/70R16 107T reinforced white sidewall) with a sufficiently higher load rating. Owner notification began January 10, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-248-0186.
