Ford Motor Co has recalled approximately 129,000 of its Mercury Milan and top-selling Ford Fusion in the United States because wheels may fall off, according to reports by several international news sites.

Reports said the recall affects only cars with 17-inch steel wheels built from April 1, 2009 through April 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009 through November 13, 2010.

According to federal regulators, the bolts holding the wheels on can fracture that will cause a vibration. If the vibration is ignored, the wheels can separate from the car.

Recent reports mentioned as of September 30, Ford has found six cases in which a wheel has fallen off possibly due to these problems. One front wheel was affected and the other five incidents involved a rear wheel.
