NEW YORK: Ford recalled more than 100,000 cars of various models in the US, the latest in a surge of recalls in the wake of the GM faulty ignition scandal.

Most of the recalled cars are Taurus/MKS/Interceptor sedans and Flex/MKT vehicles from the 2013-2014 model years, which have problematic halfshafts, part of the drivetrain. 

Ford said the halfshafts could not have been fully seated in correct position in manufacturing, and could inhibit the car’s ability to drive. Ford said the problem has not led to any accidents or injuries, but needs fixing. The automaker said some 2014 Fiestas are being recalled for a potential problem with the fuel tank that could lead to leaking. Some 2014 Escapes are being called back for repairs to the panorama roof glass. And the company is recalling F59 commercial trucks from 2011-2014 for a potential electrical problem. AFP
