Attention folks who drive Ford vehicles – Ford is recalling nearly 435,000 cars to fix rusting frame parts or faulty seats.

The biggest of the two recalls covers almost 386,000 Ford Escapes from the 2001 through 2004 model years. Officials from Ford say that the subframes can rust, which can allow a control arm to separate and hamper steering control. Ford is aware of one crash but no injuries linked to this issue.

The vehicles were originally sold or registered in 20 different states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear snow and ice from roads. Seven Canadian provinces also are included.

Ford dealers will install a reinforcement brace.

The second recall covers 49,000 Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ, Ford Escape and C-MAX vehicles from 2013 and 2014. Dealers will replace seat back frames that they say weren’t properly welded.
