Washington — Ford Motor Co. is recalling more than 38,000 SUVs and pickups under four separate recalls. Those callbacks include seats that could come loose; air bag covers that could separate during deployment; fuel system components that could cause gasoline leaks and fires; and defective transmission casings that could cause the transmission to slip out of park.

The automaker said it knows of no incidents or injuries resulting from the defects.

The recalls announced Friday include:

  • 38,000 2018 Ford Expeditions and 2018 Lincoln Navigators with second-row center bench seats that may be missing reinforcement brackets in the seat track assembly.
  •  271 2019 Lincoln Nautilus SUVs with driver-side air bag modules that may have improperly molded plastic covers that could separate during deployment and cause injury.
  • 160 2018 Ford Explorers with 2.3-liter or 3.5-liter GTDI engines with misassembled fuel pressure sensors that may result in a gasoline leak.
  • Four 2019 Ford Super Duty pickups with transmission casings that may be missing material around the casting where the park pawl engages the transmission. Ford said the defect could cause a vehicle to move while in park.

Ford said its dealers will repair the faulty vehicles for free.
