Ford Motor Co. has issued six separates recalls involving 100,610 vehicles in North America. Most of those vehicles, around 92,000 units – are being recalled due to a potential issue with front axles that run to right wheels which may have been improperly installed during assembly. According to Ford, that may cause the axle to move outward over time and eventually become disengaged.

Around 8,200 affected models are in Canada while 600 units are in Mexico. The second of the six recalls covers around 5,264 MY2011-2014 Ford F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles over an electrical system issue that could short-circuit and possibly lead to a fire

. No fires, however, have been reported, Ford disclosed. Ford likewise called back around 2,100 MY2014 Ford Escape crossovers that may have panorama roof glass not glued properly during assembly.

The other recalls covers 368 MY2014 Transit Connect vehicles in Puerto Rico over a fluid reservoir cap issue; around 200 MY2014 Ford Fiesta sedans over possible leaking fuel tanks; and around 600 Ford F52 Motorhome Stripped Chassis and F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles over a potential brake issue with the brakes.
