Ford Recalls Half-Million Bronco Sport, Escape SUVs For Fire Risk
Ford has submitted a new voluntary recall, involving over half a million SUVs manufactured as far back as 2018.
The recall points to a defective component under the hood that could lead to a fire.
The recall involves 333,342 Ford Escape units and 188,436 Bronco Sport units for a total of 521,778 potentially involved vehicles.
The culprit of this recall is said to be the fuel injector, which may crack and could then result in fuel or fuel vapor leaking.
When situated near ignition sources, this could lead to a potential fire under the hood.
