DETROIT (Reuters) -- Ford Motor Co. is recalling over 145,000 vehicles in the United States for a range of problems from defective latches to faulty drivetrains, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
This may cause the latch mechanism to freeze in cold weather and the door could open while the vehicle is moving, the agency said.
Separately, Ford is also recalling 6,164 Escape hybrid SUVs from 2006 model year because a drivetrain shaft may fracture. If a fracture occurred, it could cause the vehicle to move, even in the park position, NHTSA said.
Ford dealers will inspect the drivetrain shaft and replace it if necessary.
