RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles for an issue with a missing or misplaced clip that secures the brake pedal arm to the master cylinder push rod. If this clip is missing or damaged, the push rod could separate from the pedal arm, causing a lack of braking power. Dealers will inspect and install a retainer clip if necessary.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Monroe has recalled certain 1990-1994 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles with Monroe aftermarket struts installed for a concern with the weld mounting on the sway bar bracket where it attaches to the strut tube. On some vehicles, this weld did not fuse properly, which can cause the sway bar to drop and possibly contact the tire, damaging it. Monroe dealers will replace the affected struts.
