The list of vehicle recalls in 2013 is growing, which just proves that car manufacturers are still making mistakes. Okay, we all make mistakes (which I know) but when there is a fear that these can cause injury or in rare cases fatalities then surely something needs to be done?
According to a report it seems that various Ford and Mercury models may have to issue a recall for 725k vehicles if the NHTSA investigation shows that there is a serious fault with these models. Included in the study are the Ford Escape and Fusion and the Mercury Mariner and Milan. If these are to be recalled, then they will affect various years.
If you own a 2005-2012 Ford Escape, 2011-2012 Ford Fusion, 2005- 2011 Mariner and also a 2011 Milan then you may want to keep an eye on the NHTSA website, just in case they decide to issue a recall for these vehicles. The reason for the investigation is because there have been reports that the throttle body has been malfunctioning.
There were reports about this several years ago, but never amounted to anything as Ford did not acknowledge it as a problem. Well here we are several years down the line and it could come back to bite Ford.
Just last December Ford had to issue a recall for their 2013 Ford Escape and Fusion models because in some cases their engines were overheating. This doesn’t fill you with confidence about the two models does it?
