Ford has announced the recall of nearly 10,000 2013 Escape models because of a potential engine compartment fuel leak. Only certain vehicles equipped with a 1.6L engine are involved. One of the fuel lines, which may split, is the culprit.
Ford has taken the unusual step of telling owners not to drive affected vehicles. They are being asked to contact their local Ford or Lincoln dealer to arrange for their vehicle to be picked up and taken in for the necessary repairs.
Once at the dealer, with replacement parts in hand, repairs are expected to take about one hour of shop time.
