Washington — Ford Motor Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 8,000 new cars and SUVs because the parking brakes may not fully engage.

The recall covers some 2015-16 Ford Explorer, 2015 Taurus, Flex, Lincoln MKS and MKT vehicles.

The Dearborn automaker said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

The recall includes 7,165 vehicles in the United States, 799 in Canada and one in Mexico.

Dealers will inspect the vehicle and, if necessary, replace the parking brake control assembly.
