NEW YORK (AP) — Ford is recalling 370,000 cars because of potential corrosion to their steering shaft that may result in loss of steering.

The cars include 2005 to 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car models. About 355,000 are in the U.S. and 15,000 in Canada.

Dealers will inspect the cars and may replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and, if necessary, resecure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft.


Jurisdictions included in the recall are Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

Owners in other states also can ask for inspections and repairs.
