2013 Ford Escape Recall

16 Jul

Ford’s catching a problem with the 2013 Ford Escape before too many of them are on the lot.  The company’s recalling 8,000+ SUVs to repair carpeting installed around the center console incorrectly.  The Blue Oval doesn’t want the carpeting to bunch up and force a driver’s foot onto the brake pedal prematurely.

The affected vehicles were manufactured between March 8, 2012 and June 7, 2012.  Ford will be sending owners a recall notice.  But, if you want to be proactive, call Ford at (866) 436-7332 and reference recall number 12S34.  Then call Butler Ford’s Service Department (http://www.butlerman.com/service-and-parts.htm) for the fix.  Ford will pick up the tab.
