Ford Motor Company issued recall notices on Tuesday for more than 200,000 vehicles to check for defects ranging from potentially leaky fuel lines to stalled engines.

The largest recall encompasses nearly 135,000 Ford Flex and F-150 vehicles (model year 2014), which may have a fault in the passenger seat sensor that will cause airbags to not deploy in the event of a crash.

More than 38,600 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car models (2005 to 2011) are being recalled for a second time after a faulty repair during the previous recall may have introduced a defect into the steering shaft that could lead to a sudden loss of steering. And a potentially defective fuel or vapor line routing in roughly 27,600 Ford Transit Connect vehicles (model year 2014) that could lead to leaks.

Ford also issued three smaller recalls for possible faults in the fuel and brake pedal systems.

The company said the defects have caused no known injuries and that faulty parts will be replaced and repaired at no expense to the owners.
