Ford Recalls Hundreds of 2013 Escapes Sold in Nevada
Today’s modern automobiles are extremely complicated. On a normal internal combustion engine, computers control the firing of spark plugs, the carburetors air to fuel ratio and even repeatedly checks the exhaust to ensure it meets pollution requirements. Today’s braking systems are designed to prevent hydroplaning and roll overs. With robotic brains that control nearly all the vital systems of today’s cars, it’s amazing that they continually work correctly and it’s even more amazing when simpler aspects of the car’s designs are the cause of defects.

This weekend, the Ford Motor Company announced that it was recalling over 10,000 Ford Escape SUVs. In the 2013 model of the very popular truck, the carpet and carpet padding have been shown to shift and prevent drivers from braking and accelerating the vehicle. In the wrong circumstance, this could cause the Ford Escape to crash. The recall covers nearly 8,300 SUVs sold in the United States and 2,000 in Canada. At this time, no accidents have been reported. The Ford Escapes were built between March 8th and June 7th.
