DETROIT (AP) -- Ford is recalling 100,566 vehicles in North America for various safety defects.<br />
The company announced the six separate recalls Tuesday. No injuries related to the defects have been reported.<br />
The largest recall, of 92,022 vehicles, affects the 2013 and 2014 Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and Police Interceptor sedans, the Flex and Lincoln MKT crossovers, the 2012-2014 Edge and 2014 Lincoln MKX. Ford says the right-hand halfshaft, which is part of the axle, may disengage over time, making the vehicles inoperable.<br />
Ford is recalling 5,264 2011-2014 F59 commercial stripped chassis because corrosion could lead to a fire risk. It's also recalling 2,124 Escape SUVs from the 2014 model year because their panoramic glass roofs might leak or fall out.<br />
Ford will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles for free.
