DETROIT (AP) — The U.S. government's auto safety agency is reviewing a Ford Motor Co. recall of thousands of cars, SUVs and vans that can run low on coolant and potentially overheat and catch fire after the company proposed a remedy that doesn't fix the coolant problem.

Ford notified the agency about the recall, which has caused 29 engine fires, in paperwork dated last week. The automaker said it would install a sensor that warns owners when coolant is low in the 1.6-Liter turbocharged engines. The sensor does not solve the underlying problem of vanishing coolant.

I can't tell you the last time I actually saw someone pop the hood when getting gas (other than me of course). Check the oil, look at the brake fluid and coolant resevoirs. For chrissake, you spent how much on a car and won't risk your fingers getting dirt on them? Oh that's right, it might smudge your iPhone when you resume texting in the lane next to me.
