The Problem: The fuel lines in models equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost could split and leak, potentially causing an engine fire. The problem would only happen if the engine was running, and has so far not caused any reported injuries. 2013 Ford Escape models with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost and 2.5-liter engines are unaffected by this problem.

The Fix: Ford will repair the fuel lines for free, in a procedure that takes only about an hour to complete at a dealership. The company warns owners of affected Escapes to avoid driving them until the repair is complete, and dealers won't sell or allow test-drives of recalled models until they have been fixed.
