Ford Recalls Fusion to Fix Defective Headlights

DETROIT (AP) -- Ford is recalling about 19,000 brand-new Fusion midsize cars to fix defective headlights.

Reflectors in the low-beam lights on the 2013 Fusions can become hazy over time and reduce the brightness. It's the second recall in a week for the Fusion and the sixth recall of a new Ford vehicle in the past five months.

Ford will replace the headlights for free to fix the latest problem. The company will notify owners by mail later this month.

Last week Ford recalled new Fusions and Escape SUVs with 1.6-liter engines because they can overheat, leak fluids and catch fire. The new Escape small SUV has been recalled three other times since July.

Ford says the recalls show the company moves quickly to take care of safety problems.
