The exact number of Ford vehicles under investigation is about 500,000 and models covered in the investigation include the Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, and Marauder from 2004 to 2007. The NHTSA says that the heat shield on these cars can rust and dislodge causing the steering to jam.

 

Reports of five accidents related to the issue have been reported with one causing an injury. Ford is cooperating with the investigation.
