Ford officially issues three safety recalls in America.

Ford has recently recalled 329,000 Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles officially due to a problem that involves fuel leakage. All the vehicles that are being recalled are from American region. These include the 2010-2011 Mercury Mariner that has a 3.0 liter V6 engine.

These vehicles have found to have a kind of fuel filler flange that can crack in a few situations resulting in fuel leakage from the car. There have been no incidents or injuries reported yet by Ford.

However this kind of fuel leakage can be really harmful in certain cases. The engine can catch fire or the fuel pipe can bust resulting in drastic situations. Thus in order to avoid any of these kind of situation a recall has been made this Wednesday by the company.

The solution of this problem is pretty easy. The owners of the recalled SUVs will just have to visit their authorized Ford dealers in a nearby area. The dealers will have a look at the SUV and if there will be anything wrong with the fuel filler flanges, they will replace them. The replacement will be done totally free of cost by the company.

Along with this Ford has recalled the 6523 Shelby GT350 and GT350R coupes as well. These are recalled due to the oil leakage problem. This kind of recall was made in the year 2015 as well.

Here the company had recalled 411,000 vehicles which constituted of Mercury Milan and Ford Fusion manufactured in 2010 and 2011. These were recalled due to the fuel leakage problem too. However, the affected part that was involved in leakage was found to be different than this one.
