More than 380,000 Ford vehicles are a part of the recall announced today.

Ford just issued five safety recalls and one compliance recall. The recall will affect more than 380,000 vehicles. According to the press release by Ford more than seven different car lines have been recalled.

The recall consists of the Ford Windstar from 1998 to 2003 model. In the Ford Windstar the automaker fears a rear axle may not be safe. A number of accidents have already occurred due to the issue. A total of 342,271 Ford Windstar vans from North America will be recalled. 

The other cars to be recalled are the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner. Ford stated they believe the re-manufactured transmission in the models from 2001 to 2008 have a defect. The transmission can cause the gear shift lever to disengage from the transmission.

Next in line are the Ford F-150 pickup trucks. Ford is recalling 37,000 of the 2015 F-150 pickup trucks. The pick-up trucks have been found to contain a potential issue in the adaptive cruise control.

Similarly the Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS and Ford Explorer have also been recalled. The recall models are the 2015 models. The cars have been found to contain an issue in the fuel tank attachment bolts.

The issue could prove deadly if the tank catches fire. Lastly the Ford F-53 and F-59 for 2016 are also in the recall list. The new models have an issue in the shift control bracket.

The compliance recall announced by Ford consists of the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ models. Only 700 2016 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ cars are being recalled. The fuel tanks of the cars may have been improperly built.
