Ford stands on the second position in terms of sales. And when something like this happens, it becomes difficult to believe.
For the third time, Ford Motor Co has called back its recently launched 2013 Escape sport utility vehicle. Escapes feature a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine.
According to the company, there is a part which is not installed properly into the vehicle, and due to this, fire can anytime be triggered in the engine compartment.
There are total 7,600 Escapes in this recall and most of them are in the United States. However, as said by Ford in a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, less than 0.4% of the Escape models may have this issue.
The company took almost 10 months to manufacture these models; they were built between October 5, 2011, and Aug. 31, 2012. The company has suspected a possibility of the cup plug on the engine cylinder head getting loose in a small number of these models.
If this happens, the engine coolant will leak and the engine will be overheated. In some cases, the ethylene glycol in the coolant may also combust. Therefore to avoid the probability of any miss happening, the company has called upon the entire lot.
