Ford is recalling more than 440,000 vehicles in North America to fix problems that can cause engine fires and doors to open unexpectedly.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports: 

Ford's first recall covers over 230,000 2013-to-2015 Escapes, Fiestas, Fusions and transit connect vans with 1.6-liter turbocharged engines that Ford says can overheat, causing the cylinder head to crack and leak oil that can catch fire. 29 reports of fires. No injuries.

The company also is adding 211,000 vehicles to a previous recall to replace faulty door latches that recall covers the 2014 Fiesta and the 2013 and 2014 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. Contact your dealer.
