NHTSA opens investigation into Ford vehicles whose steering wheels may fall off.

The AP (10/27) reports NHTSA has opened an investigation into Ford over “complaints that steering wheels can come loose or fall off in the Ford Fusion.” The story says NHTSA received at least three complaints about the potential defect, and its “probe revealed in documents posted Friday covers about 841,000 midsize sedans from the 2014 through 2016 model years.”
        Reuters (10/27, Shepardson) reports that similar problems have been identified before, with General Motors having recalled 2,100 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles in 2011 due to issues with steering wheels coming off.

        Also reporting on the recall are ABC News (10/27, Cook, 2.83M), Fox Business (10/27, Spector, 741K), the Car Connection (10/27, Ganz, 118K), Roadshow (10/27, 2.35M), Consumerist (10/27, Kieler, 60K), and Law360 (10/27, 16K).
