Ford recalling 100,566 vehicles for safety issues

Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Ford is recalling 100,566 vehicles in North America for various safety defects. The company announced the six separate recalls Tuesday.

No injuries related to the defects have been reported. The largest recall, of 92,022 vehicles, affects the 2013 and 2014 Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and Police Interceptor sedans, the Flex and Lincoln MKT crossovers, the 2012-2014 Edge and 2014 Lincoln MKX.

Ford says the right-hand halfshaft, which is part of the axle, may disengage over time, making the vehicles inoperable. Ford is recalling 5,264 2011-2014 F59 commercial stripped chassis because corrosion could lead to a fire risk.

It's also recalling 2,124 Escape SUVs from the 2014 model year because their panoramic glass roofs might leak or fall out. Ford will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles for free.
