Ford recalls 3.6 million vehicles

This is a voluntary safety recall involving speed control deactivation switch systems in Ford passenger cars, trucks and SUVs built between 1992 and 2003. This is in response to some reports of fires in some Ford Crown Victoria passenger cars.

Ford dealers will provide a quick repair to all affected vehicles at no charge to the customers starting in early October.

According to the Ford website, this repair will involve
the installation of a fused wiring harness into the speed control electrical circuit, or the replacement of the deactivation switch if it is found to be leaking.

I appreciate the fact that Ford is doing this whole sale recall voluntarilly, unlike other companies who carry out such actions only after there is a widespread public outcry.
