2013 Ford Escape SUVs Recalled Over Risk of Engine Fire

It’s been a tough few weeks for the Ford Escape. Reports suggest that Ford Motors is recalling an extra 11,500 brand new Ford Escape SUVs in North America. Last weekend, the automaker recalled 8,300 2013 Escapes due to carpet problems that can affect the use of the brake pedal. Now the Ford Escape recall involves defective fuel lines that can cause engine fires.

According to Ford, not all 2013 Ford Escape SUVs have the problem with the motor compartment fuel line that can leak fuel and cause a fire in the motor compartment. In fact, only the 1.6-liter engines have the problem.

“Our intensive investigation and testing has identified the area of concern and we are moving as quickly as possible to repair vehicles for our customers,” said Ray Nevi of Ford’s safety office. “In the meantime, it is extremely important that affected customers not ignore this recall and immediately contact their dealer.”
