Ford recalls more than 440,000 vehicles.

ABC World News (5/27, story 15, 0:15, Muir, 5.84M) reported that Ford issued two recalls. The report said that the automaker is recalling “423,000 sedans and crossovers” due to “an electrical problem with the power steering.” It adds that Ford is also recalling almost 20,000 Mustangs, “because of problems with the fuel tank.”
        The AP (5/28) reports that the recall related to the power steering issue covers some “Ford Flex and Taurus vehicles, as well as the Lincoln MKS and MKT from the 2011 through 2013 model years.” Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ from 2011 through 2012 and certain 2011 Mercury Milans are also covered in the recall. The AP notes that in October, the NHTSA started “investigating complaints of power-steering failures on three Ford Motor Co. midsize car models.”

        USA Today (5/28, Woodyard, 5.01M) reports “19,486 2015 Ford Mustangs” equipped with the 2.3-liter engine are being recalled to “replace a heat shield around the gas tank.”
