Mercury Montego Recalls
In the event of a severe rear impact, a crack may develop at the fuel filler neck connection to the fuel tank. This could result in a fuel leak or illumination of the Check Engine Light. A fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire.
The side door latches may freeze in cold weather due to water intrusion. As a result, the door may not latch when closed, and could open while the vehicle is moving.
The straps securing the fuel tank to the vehicle may break, allowing the fuel tank and heat shield to drop. If this happens, drivers may hear a noise or notice a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
