Ford Recalls 1.2 Million Tauruses, Sables

Mar 11, 2004 | San Jose Mercury News

Ford Motor is recalling more than 1.2 million Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable sedans because of problems with their brake lights and air filters, the company said Wednesday.

Ford is recalling 938,789 Taurus and Sable sedans from the 2000 to 2003 model years because their brake lights can malfunction. The defect has caused at least two accidents and one injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Ford is recalling an additional 281,926 Sable and Taurus sedans from the 2003 model year because the air filter paper in the engine can smolder or burn. Ford spokesman Glenn Ray said a supplier put the wrong chemical on the filter paper.

Ray said 118,000 vehicles made early in the 2003 model year will get both repairs. Vehicles made later in the 2003 model year already have a new brake-light system, so they will only need to have the air-filter papers replaced.
