In Detroit today ford recalled 485,000 Escape SUVs to fix sticking gas pedals, much like the Toyota recall years ago. This recall covers any ford escape made from 2001-2004 model years (of the 5 Escapes that Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC currently has, none of them are effected) that are powered by V-6 engines with cruise control. Coming just a week after the US Safety Regulators began their investigation.
This is the third recall in just two weeks for the Escape. The problem with the Escape is that the cruise control cables snag on the plastic cover atop the engine and causes the gas pedal to stick.
So how does this effect you and your family? If you've already purchased an Escape within the recall period, you can take it to a Ford dealer and they'll handle your recall. if you're considering buying an SUV then look into the Chevy Equinox, Chevy Traverse, GMC Terrain or the Buick Enclave!
