It also recalled 360,000 vehicles in North America and Europe that present a fire risk in the engine compartment.

The majority of the recalled vehicles - 48,421 - were sold in the United States and its federalized territories, and 4,143 were sold in Canada.

CarComplaints.com will update this page when additional recall details are released, but F-250 owners with questions should call Ford at 866-436-7332 and ask about recall number 17C06. Moreover, the auto maker had also dismissed 211,000 Lincoln MKZs, Fusions and Fiestas because of latch problems which could have determined doors to open when the vehicle was on the road. A door latch with a fractured pawl spring tab typically results in a "door will not close" condition. Though Ford claims it knows of no injuries or accidents related to the defect, it's actually the third recall for the manufacturer this week alone.
