Mercury Cars Canada
On Thursday, Ford announced a recall on 1.39 million SUVs and sedans in North America, including 1.18 million in the U.S., due to a potential power steering failure. Affected models include the 2011-2013 Ford Explorer, as well as the 2008-2011 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner.
Transport Canada has issued a recall of 18,368 2005 to 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Cars and Mercury Grand Marquis', as the steering column lower intermediate shaft can become severely corroded.
Buyers will have one less brand to choose from in 2011, as Ford has officially announced that dealers were instructed to take their Mercury signs down on December 31, 2010.
