DETROIT (CBS Detroit) After a huge round of recalls Tuesday from GM, Fiat and Chrysler, Ford Motor Company is issuing two safety recalls and one safety compliance recall in North America. The Ford recalls affect some versions of the Edge, Lincoln MKX, E-series cutaways, and the Mustang. Ford says it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires related to these conditions. Ford is issuing safety recall for certain 2009-2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles in North America for potential fuel tank issues. It includes approximately 129,000 2009-2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles that could experience corrosion under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted to the vehicle. “This condition might result in a fuel odor, fuel leak or a check engine light. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire,” the company said in a press release. Ford says it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires related to this condition. Affected vehicles include certain 2009-2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant Sept. 11, 2008 through July 1, 2010. These vehicles are currently registered or were originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. There are a total of 128,823 vehicles that might be affected in North America, including 110,636 in the United States and federalized territories and 18,187 in Canada. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and either repair or replace it at no cost to the customer. Ford is also issuing a safety recall for certain 2016 Ford E-Series cutaway and chassis cab vehicles in North America for potential trailer brake controller issue. In these vehicles, the trailer brakes do not engage when the driver presses the brake pedal. While towing a trailer, drivers can manually apply the trailer brakes. This condition could result in extended braking distance. Again, Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford E-Series cutaway and chassis cab vehicles built at Ohio Assembly Plant, Nov. 3, 2014 through Sept. 1, 2015. There are a total of 72 vehicles that might be affected in North America, including 65 in the United States and federalized territories and seven in Canada. Dealers will update the powertrain control module software at no cost to the customer. Finally, Ford issues safety compliance recall for certain 2016 Ford Mustang vehicles in North America after restraint parts could have been damaged during shipping. Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 1,900 2016 Ford Mustang vehicles in North America after some restraint parts could have been damaged during shipping from the supplier prior to installation in the vehicle. If damaged during shipping, the affected restraint parts might not conform to federal safety requirements for seatbelts or child restraint anchor systems. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford Mustang vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Sept. 26, 2015 through Oct. 1, 2015. There are a total of 1,906 vehicles that might be affected in North America, including 1,900 in the United States and federalized territories, one in Canada and five in Mexico. Dealers will replace front and rear seat belt assemblies, rear seat buckle assemblies and child tethers at no cost to the customer.
