Ford is recalling 370,000 cars in the US and Canada because of fears that corrosion in the vehicles may affect their steering systems.
AP reports that about 15,000 are in Canada and around 355,000 of the vehicles are in the US.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries as a result of the problem. However, dealers will inspect the cars and may replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and possibly resecure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft.
The models affected include 2005 to 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars.
The American states affected are New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
