Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for the Ford Expedition.

Description of Recall

Certain 4×2 sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 120, tire selection and rims for motor vehicles other than passenger cars. The rear tire pressure is incorrectly listed on the label for 4. 2 vehicles.

Severity of the Defect

Customers may inflate their rear tires based on the incorrect tire pressure information on the certification label.

Ford’s Recommended Action

A supplementary label will be sent to customers to place near the certification label to identify the appropriate rear tire pressure. The customer may also have the dealer install the label on the vehicle, if they so desire. Owner notification is expected to begin during September or October 2002. Owners who do not receive the free label and installation instructions within a reasonable time should contact ford at 1-866-436-7332.
