Ford recently announced two separate vehicle recalls to address possible airbag and door handle malfunctions. A total of 1.4 million vehicles are affected by the two recalls, according to the New York Times.

About the Ford Airbag Recall

Ford is recalling approximately 692,500 Escape and C-Max models to repair issues with the vehicles’ safety canopy airbags. According to Ford, a software issue could cause a delay in the canopy’s deployment in certain rollover circumstances, increasing the risk of injury.

About 591,000 of the vehicles were sold in the United States, 78,000 in Canada, and 19,700 in Mexico.

About the Ford Door Handle Recall

  • Ford is also recalling approximately 692,700 Escapes with defective door handles. The company says the door handles could fail to latch properly resulting in doors opening when the vehicle is in motion.
  • About 580,000 of the vehicles were sold in the United States, 89,500 in Canada, and 20,000 in Mexico.
  • Ford has said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries that resulted because of either defect.
