It’s never a nice feeling when you read on the Internet that your vehicle could be subject to a recall, as you will be searching on websites or waiting for a letter to see if you will be one of those affected. Sadly this is just what happened for 2013 Ford Fusion and Escape owners because there was said to be an issue with the engines.
We can now tell you that the 2013 Ford Fusion and Escape recall issue can be solved with an update, which will come as good news for those affected owners. To fix your 2013 Escape and 2013 Fusion all you need to do is take your vehicle down to your nearest Ford garage and have them connect it up to a computer in order to make a few software updates, which is said to manage the temperature in your engine much better so it will not overheat.
The 2013 Ford Escape recall solution is certainly an easy one and we’re certain that it will take just a matter of minutes to resolve, so it’s not like you will need to make other plans because your vehicle will not be in for days. This is the same outcome for the 2013 Ford Escape recall as well.
Ford has said that their aim is to act promptly when situations like this arise, and they have proved it this time, but we all know that we have been let down by these automakers over the years. However, what worries us this time is the fact that this 1.6-liter engine has been the subject of three other recalls since July, with each of them being very different but with the same outcome, the engine possibly catching on fire.
The engine troubles only affect the US version of this engine because they are tuned differently to those in Europe, which is a good thing because Ford could have had a very hectic Christmas, as the engine software update will begin next week. More details on this matter and if your vehicle is affected by this issue can be found on the Ford website.
