Ford recalls 570K vehicles for fire risk, door latch trouble
Ford Motor Company is issuing three safety recalls and one safety compliance recall in North America.
The vehicles affected include the 2014 Ford Escape, 2014-15 Ford Fiesta ST, 2013-14 Ford Fusion and 2013-15 Ford Transit Connect vehicles. Overheating can lead to cracked cylinder heads that leaks oil and create the possibility of an under-hood fire. So far, Ford has 29 reports of fires in these vehicles.
Around 208,000 affected vehicles are in the USA and its territories, while nearly 22,000 are in Canada and 318 are in Mexico.
Ford will first send affected owners literature regarding checking and refilling coolant. If vehicles leak coolant or overheat, they should be taken to a dealer, Weigandt said. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17S09.
The faulty door latch recall covers the 2014 Fiesta, the 2013 and 2014 Fusion and the Lincoln MKZ.
Ford will contact owners about the recalls and provide information on how to fix the problems.
In the affected vehicles, the pawl spring tab in the side door latch can break, causing the door not to close securely, and possibly open during driving. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in 2015 it had 1,102 reports related to the problem and Ford said it had 10,883 warranty claims related to door latch failures. It affects only 548 vehicles.

Dealers will replace the two-piece drive shaft with a three-piece version along with two center-bearing brackets.

The vehicles in question might be missing some sheet metal welds in the windshield header. But the automaker is not aware of collisions or injuries associated with this issue.
