Ford is recalling more than 373,000 Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car models to fix steering shafts that can fail, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

On all 2005-2011 models registered in “Salt Belt” states, a lower part of the steering shaft could rust out and cause the upper portion to separate or collapse on itself, which could lead to a total loss of steering. The recall affects Washington, D.C., and 19 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
