Fords Set to Recall 2013 Escapes – Car Pro News

Ford is recalling 8,266 of its redesigned 2013 Escape compact crossover for a problem that could interfere with braking, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall covers vehicles built March 8 through June 7 (build date is on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb).
The new Escapes have a piece of carpet padding in the center console trim panel that might be incorrectly installed. If so, it could cause the driver’s foot to miss the brake pedal initially when moving from the gas pedal. This could increase stopping distance and could lead to an accident.
According to a statement from the automaker, “Ford has not received any field reports of increased stopping distance for this issue.”
Ford will notify owners starting July 23, and dealers will replace the affected parts. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
