Group Seeks Recall of 1.4 Million Ford Cars

Associated Press

An automobile safety group said Monday that it is asking the government to investigate and recall 1.4 million 1984-85 Ford Motor Co. cars that allegedly are prone to sudden acceleration and engine surges.

“The sudden acceleration condition occurs spontaneously and without warning, causing cars to shoot forward at a high rate of speed from a standstill,” the Center for Auto Safety said.

The request covers full- and mid-size Ford cars with fuel-injected 3.8- and 5.0-liter engines, including the Thunderbird, LTD, Crown Victoria and Mustang models, as well as the Mercury Marquis, Cougar, Grand Marquis, Capri and Colony Park models.
