Mar 30, 2017, 01:04
Ford is recalling more than 570,000 vehicles in North America and Europe to fix a mechanical issue that causes engine fires and doors to fly open unexpectedly, according to ABC News.
All of the affected vehicles (2014 Escape, 2014 to 2015 Fiesta ST, 2013 to 2014 Fusion, 2013 to 2015 Transit Connect) are fitted with the 1.6L GTDI engine.
The defect has been linked with at least 29 reports of fires in the US and Canada and no injuries, Ford said.
In addition, the company is also issuing recall notices in North American over a door latch issue on 2014 Fiestas, 2013-2014 Fusions and 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ's. If a vehicle has a coolant leak or overheats frequently, then customers should see their dealer right away.
Company officials are identifying a "lack of coolant circulation" as the culprit with those models. A door latch with a fractured pawl spring tab typically results in a "door will not close" condition.
