Ford has announced two recalls affecting about 435,000 vehicles.
The bigger recall impacts about 386,000 Escape SUVs built between 2001 and 2004.
The automaker says there may be a a corrosion issue with the vehicle that could lead to diminished steering control.
The second recall affects nearly 49,000 Ford Fusions, Escapes, C-Maxs, and Lincoln MKZs.
The company says those vehicles have seat back frames that don't conform to safety standards, increasing the risk of injury.
