2001 Ford Escape Recalls
For vehicles that have had a replacement Ford remanufactured automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may not be properly tightened. This can result in the shift lever disengaging from the transmission, making it impossible to know the proper gear selected, nor put the vehicle into park to secure it.
For vehicles registered or operating in cold weather states, the front suspension lower control arm may corrode and separate from the vehicle. This would result in loss of vehicle control.
