Ford is recalling 230,000 Escape SUVs, Fiesta ST subcompacts, Fusion midsize cars and Transit Connect vans with 1.6-Liter turbocharged engines from 2013 through 2015. Instead, Ford will mail instructions to owners reminding them to check their coolant levels, refill the coolant, and schedule service if the coolant "frequently" needs to be topped off.

Ford has 29 reports of fires, but no injuries.
Ford said it knows of at least one accident and three injuries within the 2 million cars it recalled in September.
