NHTSA opens probe of Ford Taurus.

The Detroit News (3/12, Shepardson) reported NHTSA on Sunday “said it’s opening a preliminary investigation into 360,000 2005-2006 Ford Taurus sedans over complaints of stuck throttles because of cruise control cable detachment. NHTSA said it is has received 14 complaints from Taurus owners that said the engine revved as high as 4,000 RPMs after shifting into park or neutral. Some complaints said owners had trouble stopping the vehicles – and one owner said the vehicle had traveled partially through a red light before it stopped.”
