Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 100,610 vehicles in North America, Reuters reports. The largest of Ford's six separate recalls covers about 92,000 2013-2014 model-year Taurus, Flex and Police Interceptor models along with Lincoln MKS and MKT models. Also involved are 2012-2014 model-year Ford Edge and 2014-MY Lincoln MKX vehicles.

These vehicles might have a problem with front axles involving the right-side halfshaft. Over time, the axles may move outward and eventually disengage.

About 83,000 of these recalled vehicles are in the U.S. and federalized territories. About 8,200 are in Canada and 600 are in Mexico, Ford told Reuters.

A second recall involves about 5,264 2011-2014 model-year Ford F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles. The electrical system might short-circuit, posing a fire risk, Reuters reports. A third recall involves about 2,100 2014 model-year Ford Escape crossover vehicles that may have panorama roof glass that was not glued properly during assembly.

The remaining recalls involve 368 2014-MY Transit Connect compact vans in Puerto Rico for a fluid reservoir cap issue, about 200 2014-MY Ford Fiesta sedans that may have leaking fuel tanks, and about 600 Ford F52 Motorhome Stripped Chassis and F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles that might have a brake problem.
