Ford is no stranger to issuing batches of recalls. If parts are available, dealers will install a coolant level sensor and a warning light on the dashboard telling owners if the coolant level is low, Weigandt said.
The company said the engine may overheat due to a lack of coolant circulation. It will mail customers instructions on how to check and refill coolant.
There are 210,619 vehicles affected in this expanded recall in North America, including 191,432 in the United States and federalized territories, 10,996 in Canada and 8,191 in Mexico.
Affected vehicles include 2014 Ford Fiestas, 2013 and 2014 Ford Fusions and 2013 and 2014 Lincoln MKZ vehicles. A year ago door latch recalls cost the company $640 million. The door may suddenly open while driving, rebound while closing, or be hard to close.
In the affected vehicles, the pawl spring tab in the side door latch can break, causing the door not to close securely, and possibly open during driving. Thankfully, Ford hasn't received any reports of injuries related to this issue.
Ford is also recalling 548 2017 model year F-450 and F-550 trucks with faulty driveshafts. Driving at speeds over 75 miles per hour can result in a resonance frequency that can facture the transmission along with driveline components. If that happens, the truck may lose the ability to accelerate, which is not ideal when moving at highway speeds.
Ford dealers will replace the two-piece driveshaft with a new three-piece driveshaft and two center bearing brackets at no charge to the customer. This can negatively affect the car's structural integrity, which can increase the chance of injury in a side-impact collision.
Ford has also issued a recall for 111 2017 Ford Edge cars to fix windshield header welds. To date, Ford is unaware of any injuries related to this issue. The problem occurs at 75 miles per hour and above, Ford said.
