FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTION

 DETROIT, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Owners of 1986-88-model Taurus/Sable vehicles and 1988-model Lincoln Continentals originally sold or currently in use in 14 upper-Midwest and northeastern states are being notified by Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F)of a voluntary safety recall.
 In regions where vehicles are exposed to large amounts of road salts and moisture, either or both rear body mounts at the rear corners of the subframe that supports the engine and transmission may separate. If both mounts separate, the rear of the subframe can drop and steering may become difficult. This situation can occur if the lower retainer plate of the mount is severely corroded allowing the bolt heads to pull through.
 Ford is aware of two reported accidents related to this condition, neither of which involved injuries.
 About 500,000 vehicles are affected by this program, which covers the following states: Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio.
 Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail. Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealers will service the vehicles without charge.
