Ford Recalls 90K Escapes, Fusions
Ford Motor Company is recalling thousands of vehicles.
Ford is voluntarily calling back nearly 90-thousand 2013 Ford Escapes and Ford Fusions, because of a fire hazard.
The carmaker says there have been reports of overheating and fires in models with the one-point-six liter EcoBoost engine.
The problem doesn't affect other model years, or Escapes and Fusions with different engines.
Ford says it's working on a way to fix the problem.
In the meantime, Ford is asking affected owners to contact a dealer as soon as possible to arrange for a loaner vehicle at no charge.
This isn't the first problem Ford has had with the EcoBoost engines.
Ford recalled more than six-thousand 2013 Escape crossovers in September because of a problem with the fuel line.
