Another week, another recall from Ford. This time, it's the hybrid models being targeted, namely the Maverick pickup, Escape SUV and Lincoln Corsair SUV.
The cause of this latest recall, is a risk of fire in the engine compartment, created by an engine failure that could result in the release of oil or fuel vapour onto hot components.
Ford says the problem was isolated to a manufacturing sequence for hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. During this time, a breach in the engine block or oil pan occurred.
The recall affects 100,689 vehicles in the United States.
