Ford Escape Recall

Ford Escape Recall

An important announcement made recently by the Ford Motor Company in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirms a product recall involving Ford Escape SUVs manufactured between March 8, 2012 and June 7, 2012. This recall encompasses 8,266 Ford Escape SUVs manufactured during that timeframe.

The product defect associated with these Ford Escape SUVs centers around mis-positioning of carpet mats, which have tended to reduce clearance around the brake pedal. More specifically, Ford Motor Company maintains that these poorly-positioned carpet paddings on or at the center console [trim panel] have the potential to be forced outward, thus reducing clearance with the pedals, according to both Ford and NHTSA.

That reduced clearance may mean the driver's foot could brush the side of the brake pedal, which creates obvious issues of increased stopping distance and the heightened potential of a collision.
