Improper heat treatment of the wheel bearing and hub assembly may allow the hub to fracture. If the hub fractures, the wheel will only be retained by the brake caliper assembly. If the wheel falls off while driving, a crash could result. Dealers will inspect and replace both front wheel bearing and hub assemblies free of charge. The recall began June 22, 2007. The Ford recall number is 07S54.
