Ford Issues a Recall on 2013 Escape and Fusion with 1.6-Liter Engine

Dec 3 2012, 1:12pm CST | by

Ford has announced a recall on 2013 Escape and Fusion vehicles that use the 1.6-liter engine. The recall was issued over a risk of overheating that could result in engine fires. The recall covers 2013 SE and SEL model Escapes and 2013 SE and SEL model Fusions.

Ford says to determine if your vehicle is covered in the recall you need to check the 17-digit VIN and if the character in the eighth place is a "X" or "R", the vehicle is covered. Interestingly, there are no repair procedures available right now.

It also appears that Ford is handing out loaner cars until repair procedures are devised and fixes can be made at no cost owners. Ford estimates that the recall covers about 73,320 Escapes and 15,833 Fusions within the US and Canada.

The car that gets the girl: beware false upfront advertising

Aug 22 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

She was beautiful up there on the stage at Harrison Trimble High School in Moncton, New Brunswick, in 1967. Her silky flaxen hair delicately swayed as she finessed the bow over the strings of the first cello in the Saint John High School orchestra that was visiting our school. When she looked toward my seat in the third row of the auditorium, she played only for me. I was certain of that. When the concert was over, I bolted from the school past the Saint John High S ...

Vancouver car voted one of top 10 customs in 1963

Aug 22 2014 6:15pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Car Craft magazine was one of the bibles for the rapidly escalating interest in car customizing when, in 1963, it published a special edition identifying the 10 best custom cars for 1963. This was at the peak of the car customizing craze that swept North America with owners transforming their rides into moving art and sculpture. The synergy of vision, opportunity and skills required to turn a mental picture into moving metal art is rare. Only a few achieve international exposure. ...
