Ford federal investigation

NewsChannel 10

Federal safety officials are investigating the Ford Freestyle after getting more than 230 complaints that it can suddenly lunge forward when it's supposed to be idling.

18 minor crashes have been reported so far, involving the 2005 through 2007 model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the cars can lurch up to ten feet when the driver's foot is neither pressing the gas nor pressing the brakes.

Investigators are deciding if a safety recall is necessary.
