DrkKnight614 Posted via FF Mobile Again, doesnt really seem like that big of a deal...especially if you actually read the article, which I'm sure many didn't. Cars get recalls all the time.

lyonsroar "at least they're owning up to it and doing something about it..."

I remember that comment from the last thread about the first recall.

rambleon84 You would think they would have sorted this out and got it taken care of during the first recall...

That number of recalled is actually higher, the one the op linked to is just in the US.

"The new Escape recall covers 7,600 2013 SUVs built with 1.6-liter engines, including 6,150 in the United States and 1,300 in Canada. The recalled vehicles were built between Oct. 5, 2011, and Aug. 31."

The 2.0L EcoBoost i4 makes at least 230-240 hp in this application, or about the same as they were making out of the 3.0L N/A V6 that was still available in the 2012 Fusion, so while it's likely to not be that fast in a 4500 lb Explorer it might not be as overwhelmed as the older 3.0L V6 in the Freestyle when that car weighed in around 4000lbs but with the 201hp version of the older Duratec 3.0L V6. It needed the CVT to get the most out of the engine, but the car was still slightly under powered.

The 1.6L EcoBoost engine is more powerful than the base 2.5L i4 engine while being more efficient off boost. Its also very nearly as powerful as the 2.4L i4 in the Honda CR-V.

The Escape is much nicer to drive than the CR-V as well.

You should probably drive one before you say that
