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

The first recall covers over 230,000 Escape SUVs Fiesta ST subcompacts Fusion midsize cars and Transit Connect vans with 1.6-Liter turbocharged engines from 2013 through 2015

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.

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.
