Ford Escape Recall, Fire Danger

Ford Escape Recalled for Fire Danger
Ford's Escape utility vehicle has been hit with its third recall in two months. This time it was for a faulty part installation that could lead to a vehicle fire.

A prior recall on the Ford Escape also involved a fire danger.

This time the recall involves 7,600 2013 Ford Escape vehicles fitted with the 1.6 liter "Eco Boost" engine, the majority of which have been sold in the US and only about 1,500 sold in Canada.

Reports are that part of the engine was improperly installed and could come apart, resulting in an immediate loss of engine coolant. That, in turn, can cause a fire if the fluid hits a hot engine part.
