125K Hybrid Electric Vehicles Recalled
A recall for 125,322 hybrid electric vehicles by Ford Motor Company is due to potential fire risk in the 2.5L HEV (hybrid electric vehicles) or PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) engines.
The following vehicles are subject to the Ford recall:
- 2020-2023 Escapes
- 2022-2023 Mavericks
- 2021-2023 Corsair
The latest recall replaces and expands an earlier one issued in July 2022. These vehicles could experience engine failure that could lead to a fire if oil and fuel vapor gets released into the engine compartment. If that happens, the vapor could accumulate near a hot engine or exhaust component and cause a fire. Owners are being advised to park their vehicles outside and turn off the engine immediately if they hear a noise in the engine, see smoke, or notice a reduction in power.
Currently, the automaker is working to find a remedy to fix the issue and will send out a notification to owners at that time.
Also, previously repaired vehicles from the earlier recall will also need to be repaired.
