Police Chases Ford Driver Stuck in Cruise Control
text size: A- A+
It all happened last December in Melbourne on the Eastern Freeway but driver Chase Weir says he doesn't know the reason why his car was unable to stop.
Curiously, Ford Australia has already investigated the car and preliminary results showed that there's nothing wrong with the vehicle. Furthermore, police experts also emphasized that the inspected vehicle showed no problems that could lead to the cruise control getting stuck but admitted that further examinations will be conducted as well.
"We received access to Chase's vehicle last week and have not found anything wrong with it," Ford spokesperson Sinead McAlary told AAP.
Back in October, Ford issued a recall saying that around 4.5 million Explorer sold across the globe might be affected by a cruise control glitch but this week extended the campaign saying that more cars are likely to present the problem.
As we said, the 22-year-old driver said that he doesn't know the reason why the car failed to stop but said that it could be the result of a service operation performed in Brisbane.
"Ford also told me you are supposed to get brake fluid checked and changed every two years but no one told me that and it was not done when it was serviced," he told AAP.
