Ford is issuing two recalls that cover a total of 442,300 vehicles in North America. One is for 422,814 cars for a possible power steering fault, and the other is for 19,486 units of the 2015 Mustang with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost for high underbody temperatures.
Ford is expanding its door-latch recall to an additional 156,000 vehicles in North America because the doors might not close, or could open while driving. The affected models include certain years of the Fiesta, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, and the majority are in the US.
