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.

Filed under: Performance, Europe, Government/Legal, Hatchback, Kia, Nissan, Electric Quick Spin: 2014 Kia Cee'd GT We're undergoing somewhat of a Hot Hatch Revival here in America these days, but the sad truth is that for every Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus ST we can buy, the average European shopper has three to choose from. So, if we can't beat 'em, we'll borrow 'em. We travel to the UK, to wring out a perfectly warm Ki ...

A driven mind reflects on the pleasures of ‘pure’ driving

Sep 18 2014 6:28pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

An RCMP officer might rack up plenty of cruiser kilometres but his primary on-the-job purpose is police work. Same for firefighters, park rangers and even the Victorian Order of Nurses. They need to drive to do their job — but the job is not driving. So what, in my estimation, is a “pure” driving job? Transporting something somewhere is usually the crux of it. Although a travelling salesperson with a big area to cover drives plenty, the ...

Citroen C4 Cactus Airflow 2L promises 141 mpg, no door dings [w/video]

Sep 18 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Concept Cars, Hybrid, Technology, Hatchback, Citroën I'm the president of Autoblog's chapter of the Citroën C4 Cactus Appreciation Club. Full Disclosure: I'm also probably its only member. Why am I fan, you ask? Because the C4 and its ding-resistant Airbumps offer the versatility of a five-door Ford Focus, but it's 350 pounds lighter than today's Mazda MX-5 Miata, tipping the scales at just over 2,100 pounds. And when equipped ...

Big Wheels: Two up-and-comers head out for a spin

Scott Hargrove is coming off a race season most veteran hot shoes could only dream about. The 19-year-old rookie from Surrey made headlines in not one but two high-profile race series in 2014, a fact all the more impressive considering each series features totally different racing machines. He won the 2014 GT3 Porsche Cup Challenge Canada Championship in a sports car owned by OpenRoad Auto Group, and finished sec ...

Meet Sparky, Nissan's Leaf-based, Frontier-bedded EV parts hauler [w/video]

Sep 18 2014 11:48am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, Work, Nissan, Electric For many enthusiasts, the concept of the ute - a car with a pickup bed - is somehow irresistibly appealing. On paper, it promises the marriage of a truck's utility and a car's superior driving dynamics, and for that reason alone, we'd love to see more of them. Yet while other parts of the world get them in good numbers, North America doesn't ever see them - at least not for long. Based on what we've seen of late, though, ...
