      Safety issues cause recall of more than 160,000 vehicles from Ford

      Ford is recalling more than 160,000 vehicles in North America for two safety issues.



      DETROIT (AP) -
      Ford is recalling more than 160,000 vehicles in North America for two safety issues.



      The largest
      recall involves 159,395 Focus ST and Escape vehicles from the 2013 and 2014 model years. Ford says their engines could hesitate or stall because of a wiring problem.




      Ford

      also is recall


      ing 616 Focus and C-Max cars made earlier this month because their steering gears don't have the proper number of ball bearings. That can potentially degrade the remaining ball bearings and lead to a loss of steering control.




      Ford

      says there have been no accidents or injuries related to either recall


      . The 616 cars are still at dealerships and haven't been sold.




      Ford

      Motor Company will notify customers and repair the vehicles for free.
