Ford Escape contains a defective product in its engine

Ford is a popular brand of vehicle in Montana due to is versatility in model and being easily attainable by consumers. The company has recently issued another two recalls because the 2013 Ford Escape contains a defective product in its engine. A customer who has purchased and suffered injury from an automotive defective product may choose to pursue compensation for damages to their property and themselves.

The 2013 Ford Escape has been described by the manufacturer as one of the most popular of its kind in the United States. The prominently severe recall covers the Escapes made between 2001 and 2013 that have a 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine with four cylinders. Approximately 139,000 vehicles that match this description are at risk for a defective product in the motor. The engine could develop oil leaks from fissures created from an overheating engine head and result in catching fire.

The second recent recall announced by Ford was to follow up on the fire hazard that continues to recur. In addition, it concluded that a defective fuel line could further cause fire from leaking gas into the area where the motor is contained. These defective product recalls come in a series of seven recalls declared by the manufacturer.

Certain models of the 2013 Ford Escape contain a defective product in its engine, potentially placing motorists at risk. Montana car owners who have experienced an injury to themselves or property loss due to a defective product may be angry at the manufacturer responsible for the inefficient vehicle. Victims may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and a myriad of other disasters directly caused by the product in question.
