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

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.
