Ford Recalls 112,000 Ford, Mercury and Lincoln Sedans, 61,000 Mustangs
DETROIT (AP) _ Ford Motor Co. is recalling 173,000 cars to fix flaws in fuel filler seals or power seat wiring that could create a risk of fire.
The automaker said Monday that about 112,000 1995 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car sedans might have a defective seal where the fuel tank is joined to the filler pipe. The flaw creates a risk of seepage when the tank is nearly full.
Ford said it had no reports of fires or injuries related to the problem.
About 61,000 1994 Mustang GTs are being recalled to fix a front seat wire harness that could cause a short circuit. Ford said it had eight reports of short circuits, none involving injuries.
