The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration initially announced it was opening a probe of the 2005 to 2006 Taurus. But it has since expanded the scope of the probe to cover the Taurus line back to 2001 while also including the near-twin Mercury Sable model.

Though there have been no reports of accidents or injuries, the investigation was triggered by 14 complaints filed by Taurus owners, including one who ran a red light unable to bring the car to a halt.  As many as 30 complaints have been cited to justify the expansion of the investigation. The probe by the  is in a preliminary stage and it has not yet been determined whether a recall will be required.
