Ford Recalling More Than 160,000 Vehicles

DETROIT (CBSMiami/AP) — Ford issued a recall for at least 160,000 vehicles in the U.S.

The largest recall involves 159,395 Focus ST and Escape vehicles from the 2013 and 2014 model years. Ford said their engines could hesitate or stall because of a wiring problem.

Ford is also recalling 616 Focus and C-Max cars made earlier this month because their steering gears don’t have the proper number of ball bearings. That can potentially degrade the remaining ball bearings and lead to a loss of steering control.

Ford said there have been no accidents or injuries related to either recall. The 616 cars are still at dealerships and haven’t been sold.

Ford Motor Co. will notify customers and repair the vehicles for free.
