Sources have stated that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Ford officials have said U.S. safety regulators are investigating Ford Motor Co.'s Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans from the 2007 to 2009 model years for brakes that may fail in certain conditions and there have been three reported crashes related to this issue, but no injuries.


It was stated that the probe was opened on Dec. 20 and involves one of Ford's most popular models, the Fusion. The Milan is no longer produced. The probe can lead to a safety recall but is short of one at this point. A report on the NHTSA website has showed that when the sedans go over rough or uneven surfaces, such as a manhole cover, or on slippery roads, the anti lock braking system may not work properly. This can increase the distance required to stop the cars, heightening the chance of a crash.

NHTSA has said that in some cases, consumers complained that the brake pedal "goes soft" and often is reported as "going to the floor." Ford has said it is cooperating with federal safety officials in the investigation. The 2006-2011 Fusion and Milan sedans are among the 1.9 million Ford models affected by an ongoing massive Takata Corp. airbag recall that includes more than a dozen automakers.
