Ford Recalls 570K Vehicles for Fire Risk, Door-Latch Trouble

The recalls include 211,000 vehicles in North America to replace potentially faulty side door latches and 230,000 vehicles for under-hood fire risks.

The company is alerting 230,000 owners of four 2013 through 2015 models, including Fusion mid-size cars, Escape SUVs, Fiesta ST subcompacts and Transit Connect vans with 1.6-Liter turbocharged engines. Engines can overheat when coolants don't circulate properly, resulting in a crack in the cylinder head that allows oil to leak onto hot engine surfaces, the Dearborn-based automaker said. If a vehicle has a coolant leak or overheats frequently, then customers should see their dealer right away.

Ford Motor Co., the second largest US automaker, on Wednesday announced two new recalls affecting 440,000 vehicles and expects to spend about $295 million to fix the issues.

Ford says that customers can still drive their vehicles, though the company is mailing each customer instructions from the owner's manual on how to check and refill coolant.

A Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) recall has been issued in 2017 that involves 440,000 additional vehicles. But the automaker is not aware of collisions or injuries associated with this issue. Driving at speeds over 75 miles per hour can result in a resonance frequency that can facture the transmission along with driveline components. A total of 509 trucks are affected in the United States.

Fracture of the transmission and/or driveline components may result in a loss of motive power without warning while driving, or unintended vehicle movement in park if the parking brake is not applied, increasing the risk of injury or crash. Dealerships will replace the current two-piece driveshaft in favor of a three-piece unit with two center bearing brackets.
