The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration announced that more than 16 million Ford vehicles are susceptible to fire emanating from a defect in their cruise control systems. Eight separate recalls of Ford vehicles have been spawned by this problem.

The fire hazard exists whether or not the cruise control is being utilized. It is suggested that owners of the following Ford vehicles make an immediate appointment with their mechanics to have their vehicles evaluated:

1995-2003 Ford Windstars
2000-2003 Ford Excursion Diesels
1993-1997 and 1999- 2003 Ford F-Super Duty Diesels
1992-2003 Ford Econolines
1995-2002 Ford Explorers and Mercury Mountaineers
1995-1997 and 2001-2003 Ford Rangers
1994 Ford F53 Motor Homes

It is also strongly suggested that owners of these Ford vehicles avoid parking their vehicles in their garages or near their homes until the vehicle is inspected.
