Ford recalls 92,000 vehicles over drive-shaft problem

Ford is recalling about 92,000 sedans and crossovers in North America because of a problem with the front, right half shaft, which means the vehicles can cause drivers to “experience the loss of drive function” suddenly, the automaker said Monday.

The models covered by the recall are the 2013-14 Ford Taurus, police interceptor sedans and Flex; the Lincoln MKT and MKS; and the 2012-14 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX. About 83,000 of the vehicles are in the United States, about 8,200 in Canada and 600 in Mexico.

The problem was detected through warranty claims, said Kelli Felker, a spokeswoman for Ford.

Other recalls announced by Ford on Monday covered about 200 Fiesta compacts from the 2014 model year because the gas tank may leak and about 2,100 Ford Escape crossovers from 2014 because a weak bond could cause the panoramic glass sunroof to leak or break away from the vehicle.

The automaker said it was not aware of any accidents or injuries related to any of the recalls.
