According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 206,000 2004 and 2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles after a problem was found with the converter output shaft, potentially causing it to fail while the vehicle is in motion and thereby increasing the risk of crash.
The recalled vehicles can experience a sudden loss of movement that may reportedly come without warning due to the faulty torque converter shaft. The shaft can potentially fail, leading to an increased risk of crashing the vehicle. The recalled vehicles are a part of the recall campaign number 11S25.
The company, Ford, will begin notifying consumers beginning the second quarter of 2012. Consumers can contact the company at 866-436-7332 for more information regarding the recalled vehicles.
