Ford Motors issued a recall today for three models, totaling some 48,000 vehicles.

The 2015-16 Ford Transit, 2015-16 Lincoln MKC, 2016 Explorer and two heavy-duty truck types were were the models recalled.

The Transit made up the bulk of the recall, with 37,905 of the low-roof vans, because of an issue with the side-curtain air bags. In some vans, Ford said, they could be incorrectly positioned, and thus less effective.

About 37,066 vehicles are in the United States and 839 are in Canada.

No injuries, so far, have been reported, according to Ford.

The Lincoln and Explorer made up 5,536 of the recall because of an issue with the heaters. Ford said the design of the engine block, and the particular heater, can cause overheating and, potentially, fire.

About 1,543 of the affected vehicles are in the United States and 3,993 are in Canada.

There have been two reports of fire in Canada, but no injuries.

Ford F-650 and F-750 heavy-duty trucks made up the remainder recalled because the parking brake cable connector clips could be faulty. In some cases, Ford said, the clip could break, disabling the brake.

Ford said they don’t know of any injuries related to this issue.

Of the 4,764 vehicles affected, 4,654 are in the United States and 110 are in Canada.

If you drive one of these makes, dealers will replace the faulty parts for free.
