Ford recalls 450,426 minivans and SUVs

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

DEARBORN, MI (AP) — Ford says it’s recalling nearly half a million minivans and SUVs because of a pair of mechanical issues.

The Dearborn, MI-based automaker is recalling 205,896 Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans made during the 2004 and 2005 model years, because their torque converter output shaft may fail and cause a loss of power.

Ford Motor Co. is also recalling 244,530 Escape SUVs made during the 2001 and 2002 model years, because of a leaky brake fluid cap. If the fluid leaks, it could corrode electrical connectors and lead to a fire.

Ford says it will inform owners and replace the parts for free.

In the case of the Escape, Ford says there could be a parts delay. If so, owners should park their cars outside until the parts become available.
