Ford Recalls Escape SUVs for Fire Hazards

By Car Accident Help on December 2, 2013

Ford is recalling Escape SUVs to fix oil and fuel leaks, which could potentially lead to fires. According to a news report in USA Today, the automaker has recalled the Escape SUVs seven times since they were redesigned and went on sale in the spring of 2012. The most recent recall involves more than 161,000 SUVs worldwide from the 2013 model year. These vehicles have the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines.

The leaks could occur because the fuel lines in about 12,000 may have been installed incorrectly. So far, Ford has received reports of 13 fires, but no injuries. The Escape has been recalled for a variety of issues since July 2012 including defective carpet padding that can interfere with brake pedals, coolant leaks, and child safety locks. When this particular recall begins in January, dealers will repair the cooling and control systems and replace fuel lines at no cost to consumers.

Vehicle defects could occur for a variety of reasons. The defects may originate during the design process or when the vehicle is being manufactured. Incorrect assembly or installation of certain parts can also lead to dangerous auto defects. Vehicle fires can result in burn injuries, fatalities, and even significant property damage.

Anyone who has suffered serious injuries or damages as a result of auto defects would be well advised to contact a skilled auto products liability lawyer who has had the experience standing up and fighting against large automakers on behalf of injured clients and their families.

The knowledgeable auto product defect attorneys at the Maples Law Firm have helped numerous injured clients obtain fair and full compensation for their losses. Our Oklahoma dangerous products attorneys have dedicated several years to protecting the rights of those seriously injured in accidents involving defective vehicles.
