Ford recalls 83,250 cars and SUVs

By The Associated Press
DETROIT (AP) -- Ford is recalling 83,250 vehicles because a faulty part could cause them to lose power or roll away if they're parked.<br /> <br /> The recall involves the 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX; the 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT; and the 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS.<br /> <br /> The company says that due to the improper installation of a clip in the axle, the halfshaft can disengage from the linkshaft. If that happens, power won't be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, the vehicles could roll out of the "park" position if the emergency brake isn't engaged.<br /> <br /> Ford says there have been no reports of injuries or accidents related to the defect.<br /> <br /> Ford will notify owners and begin free repairs by the end of August.
