2013 Ford Escapes Recalled for Pedal Problem

Ruben Tyler Kendrick4 years ago

Ford is recalling more than 8,000 2013 Escape SUVs because of mis-positioned carpet padding which could block a driver’s access to the pedals and increase the risk of an auto accident.

Pedal Problems Could Increase Crash Risk

According to the official recall notice, the mis-positioned carpet padding can be pushed out of the intended position, reducing clearance to the pedals. This can affect the way in which drivers switch from acceleration to braking and may increase the chances of a crash.
