Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday recalled about 35,000 pickup trucks and crossover vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because of possible fuel leaks and electrical shorts that could lead to fires.
Ford said the recall includes about 25,000 2010 Ranger pickups and involves fixing potential problems with the fuel line that could lead to a fuel leak and a fire.
Separately, Ford is recalling more than 9,000 trucks and crossovers to fix a software problem that could lead to an electrical short and overheating, potentially causing a fire. The recall involves 2011 model years of the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers and the Ford F150, F250, F350, F450, F550 trucks.
Ford said no fires or injuries had been reported in the Ranger recall, which involves pickups built from mid-October 2009 through mid-May 2010. The recall involving the Edge and F-Series trucks covers vehicles built from October 25, 2010 through November 20, 2010. Both are expected to begin in early March.
