Recall roundup: 1.4m Ford vehicles affected image

Ford has issued four separate recalls for some of its models which are affecting a total of 1.4 million vehicles, built between 2006 and 2013.

The Ford Escape and the Mercury Mariner are being affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of the torque sensor in the steering column, which could lead to sudden power steering failure. A total of 915,216 units, from the 2008 to 2011 model years, will be affected by this recall.

The car manufacturer is also recalling 177,500 units of the Ford Explorer, which is suffering from a similar problem, because of the intermittent electrical condition in the steering column. This recall is covering model years 2011 to 2013. Another 200,000 units of the Ford Taurus sedans are being recalled because of a corrosion issue in the license plate lamp and this is affecting model years 2010 to 2014.

The last and final recall is affecting the 2006 to 2011 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ/Zephyr, in 82,576 units. This has been announced because of the floor mats, which can interfere with the accelerator pedals. Owners of the models mentioned above should contact the car company in order to find out more on the subject.
