2014 Ford Escape Recall

Apr 18, 2014
2014-ford-escape_100430739_lFord has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2013 through 2014 Ford Escape vehicles manufactured from June 5, 2012 through August 12, 2013. They stated that the driver and passenger seatback assemblies may have been produced with sub standard weld joints used to attach the seat back recliner mechanism to the seat frame. The affected seat backs may have insufficient strength to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The back of the subject seats may become loose or lean while driving and potentially increase the risk of injury in certain crashes. Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seatback, free of charge. Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673. For more information on this recall and others like it, check out AllworldAuto.com

What is a recall?

Is your vehicle involved in a Recall?

A recall is an action by the Company to remedy a safety or emissions related concern related to a vehicle defect or regulatory requirement. It may require that you return your vehicle to the dealer for service. If your vehicle is not affected, it may be because it was built at a different time or using a different part than the affected vehicles.

What is a Technical Service Bulletin?

Technical Service Bulletin for your vehicle?

Technical Service Bulletins, or TSBs, are the way that car makers notify their dealer service departments of known problems with specific model vehicles. These bulletins are also available to independent garages, owners, and do-it-yourselfers.

What is a Vehicle Defect Investigation?

Is your vehicle part of a Defect Investigation?

Motor vehicle and related safety defect investigations of vehicles, tires and equipment opened since 1972. Investigations are opened as a result of suspected component failures that present a risk to highway safety, and from non-compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Keeping an eye on recalls and manufacturer defects is imperative for the safety of you and your loved ones. Keep in touch with your Phoenix Ford dealership or local manufacturer for updates and bookmark allworldauto.com.
