Ford Motor announced Thursday a recall of 224,000 vehicles because of a windshield wiper problem.

Apparently, lack of grease on the wiper motor output shaft can cause the wipers to seize. The NHTSA-inspired recall applies to 2006 model year Escape, Expedition, Explorer, F-150, E-150, E-250, E-350, E-450, Ranger, Taurus, Mark LT, Navigator, Mariner and Mountaineer models, according to Reuters.
