2013 Ford Escape Models Recalled for Engine Fire Risk

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 3, 2012

Ford Motor Company recently issued an announcement that all owners of 2013 Ford Escape sports utility vehicles equipped with four-cylinder 1.6-liter motors should stop driving them immediately due to a fire risk in the engine compartment. Ford has acknowledged that a fuel line could split and leak, causing leaking fuel to come in contact with hot engine parts and ignite. Ford says the recall affects around 11,500 Escape models, mostly sold in Canada and the U.S. Many of the Escape models affected by the recall are still at dealerships, but around 4,800 have been sold to customers. Escape owners are advised to contact their local Ford dealership immediately so that loaner vehicles can be arranged and their Escapes can be picked up and taken to the dealership for repair.
