A federal safety panel has expanded an investigation into more than 4 million 1983-86 Ford cars to determine whether their front seats could suddenly fall backward, government documents showed. The National Highway Transportation Safety Board said that it has elevated the inquiry to what it called the mid-level engineering analysis stage. The investigation now covers all small to mid-size 1983-86 Ford cars, including the Escort-Lynx, Tempo-Topaz, Mustang-Capri and LTD-Cougar.
