You may remember that Ford Motor Company recalled about 16,000 2013 Fusions and 73,000 Escape SUVs with a 1.6-liter engine due to problems that could cause fires. The company is now stating that they have developed an after-market software fix that will solve the problem for both the SE and SEL models.
According to the company, the overheating issues only occur during specific conditions. The software is supposed to manage the engine during this time. Recall notices go out to owners of these vehicles to help keep them safe and to prevent accidents. Unfortunately, owners do not always receive one.
If you are an owner of one of these recalled vehicles and are injured, the Ford Motor Company may be liable if the collision was caused by a defect.
