Drive Train, May 15, 1992

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1990-1992 Taurus and Mercury Sable wagons to replace the self-latching assembly in the rear storage compartment. The potential exists for a child to accidentally lock him or herself inside the storage compartment or rear footwell area. This could lead to panic, air deprivation, or possible asphyxiation, as the compartment cannot be opened from the inside once locked. Dealers will replace the latch assembly with one that can only be locked with a key.

Brakes, September 26, 1991

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1990-1992 Taurus, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles in cold weather, high corrosion states to replace the brake rotors. The original rotors on the vehicle can easily corrode and separate, causing a potential braking safety issue. Dealers will replace the front rotors with full cast iron rotors.
