(Detroit) - Ford is recalling more than 570,000 vehicles in North America and Europe to fix separate problems that can cause engine fires and doors to fly open unexpectedly.
The engine fire recall covers over 360,000 vehicles in North America and Europe.
In North America it includes Escape SUVs from the 2014 model year, plus the 2014 and 2015 compact Siesta ST, the 2013 and 2014 Fusion midsize car and the 2013 through 2015 Transit Connect small van.
The company says engines can overheat, causing the cylinder head to crack and leak oil that can catch fire.
Ford has 29 reports of fires, but no injuries.
Owners can keep driving the vehicles but should go to a dealer if the cars overheat or frequently need coolant.
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.
