Ford says it will spend $295 million on two new recalls

Ford said Wednesday that it would fix defects in more than 441,000 vehicles in North America through separate recalls, including certain versions of the popular Escape sport-utility vehicle and Fusion sedan.

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. A lack of coolant circulation can cause these vehicles to overheat and explode. So far, Ford has 29 reports of fires in these vehicles.

In the second major recall, an expansion of a previous one, Ford reports it needs to replace faulty door latches in more than 211,000 2014 Ford Fiestas, 2013-14 Ford Fusions, and 2013-14 Lincoln MKZs.

Separately, the expanded recall covers 210,619 vehicles to fix a tab in the side door latch that could break, potentially causing the door to swing open while driving.

Ford is recalling the current-generation Escape for engine fires, according to the company and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This can negatively affect the car's structural integrity, which can increase the chance of injury in a side-impact collision. Ford has recalled almost 2.9 million cars for these faulty door latches since 2015.

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 548 2017 Ford F-450 and F-550 vehicles to replace the driveshaft. For that reason, you should be aware of Ford's latest recalls.

The defective drive shaft will cause the truck to experience vibration issues at high speeds.
