Summary
This PE was opened after ODI became aware of two allegations concerning rear axle fracture and partial wheel separation involving MY 2003 Ford Crown Victoria police interceptors (cvpi).initially, the PE's scope involved all MY 2003 Grand Marquis, Crown Victoria, and Lincoln Town cars (I.e., "panther platform") produced through January 2003.while gathering information about this issue, it became evident that the failures were confined to long-wheelbase Lincoln Town cars and the cvpi's due to their unique weight distribution and usage profiles.Ford's recall addresses these vehicles.both the company and ODI are continuing to monitor the field performance of the axles and will take appropriate action as required.
