Ford recalls 1.3M Fusions over 'detaching' steering wheels

People crowd around a 2017 Ford Fusion being displayed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit

Ford is recalling almost 1.4 million midsize cars in North America because the steering wheel can detach from the steering column and drivers could lose control.

Ford says steering wheel bolts can loosen over time.

The company is aware of two accidents with one alleged injury related to the defect.

2014-18 Fusions and MKZs built in Hermosillo, Mexico, from July 25, 2013, to March 5, 2018. Ford will install a larger bolt with more threads along with a larger nylon patch to keep it all locked down.

A second recall involves 2013-2016 Focus vehicles equipped with a 1.0- or 1.6-liter engine and manual gearbox.

When driving a auto, the steering wheel is only expected to move in a rotational fashion, either clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Separately, Ford said Wednesday that it would recall about 6,000 cars for potential clutch plate fractures that could increase the chance of a fire.
