Ford issued three safety recalls last week. The recalls are on the Explorer, Lincoln Aviator, and F-350 Super Duty pickup truck.

Ford said in a news release that it was recalling nearly 800,000 Ford Explorer models that were made between 2013 and 2017 due to a malfunction that could significantly diminish steering control and increase the probability of a car crash. 

The recall also covers about 35,000 2020 and 2021 models of the Ford F-350 Super Duty that have a 6.7-liter engine. The car models have been identified as at an elevated risk of a crash.

The 2020 and 2021 Lincoln Aviator's recall has not been connected to any injuries. Though, Ford is recalling over 40,000 of the cars that are equipped with a 3.0-liter gas engine, due to an issue between the car's battery and the A/C pulley.

Ford said it will notify customers of the individual recalls by mid-August and dealers will inspect the vehicles for the potential defects.
