Ford Motor Co. reportedly is voluntarily calling back 155,700 Crown Victoria police cruisers and taxis built in the '03-'05 model years. The sedans are at risk of catching on fire due to a sound insulator that could slip out of position and overheat. The insulation is located under the dash and could ignite critical components. The auto maker says no accidents or injuries have been reported in connection to the potential risk.
