Ford Motor Co. has issued a recall on around 160,000 Focus ST sedans and Escape crossovers from model years 2013-2014 due to a wiring issue. The wiring problem could impact the engine, said Ford, causing it to stall or even lose power. No injuries or accidents have currently been linked to the issue, and the automaker has said that only people in North America with a 2.0-liter engine will be affected.
This is the 11th recall for the 2013 Ford Escape. The company noted that no single Escape has been affected by all 11 recalls, however. Dealers will be able to replace the wiring for free, explained the automaker.
Ford is also recalling another 83,000 cars due to potential issues with the linkshaft and halfshaft. The problems could cause the affected vehicles to roll away if in park and the emergency brake is not being used.
The list of cars being recalled is as follows:
- 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured Sept. 2, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2013
- 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured Aug. 25, 2011, to Nov. 30, 2013
- 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured Sept. 12, 2011, to Nov. 30, 2013
