DETROIT (CBS4/AP) — Ford Motor Co. is recalling more than 89,000 2013 Escape SUVs and Fusion sedans because officials say the engines can overheat and cause fires.
The recall affects vehicles from the 2013 model year with 1.6-liter turbocharged engines that were sold in the U.S. and Canada, the company said in a statement.
Ford says it’s working on a fix and is asking owners to contact dealers, who will arrange for loaner cars at no charge until the repairs are made. The company says the engines can overheat and leak fluids onto hot parts, causing fires. Ford is trying to find out what causes the overheating problem.
