Ford Motor Co. is cooperating with the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA) by recalling 34,013 sport utility
vehicles, namely Ford Freestar, model 2004 and Mercury Montery,
model 2004.

Certain minivans may have been produced with front wheel hub
assemblies that were not heat treated correctly. This condition
may lead to the development of small cracks in the hub. If the
cracks were to progress, this could eventually result in wheel
separation. Wheel separation may lead to loss of vehicle
control and potentially result in a vehicle crash.

Dealers will replace the front hub, rotors and wheel bearings.
The recall began on September 20,2004.
