Damn. Like someone stated - at least they admitted there is a problem/possible problem.

Aaaaannnddd the comments under the article are exactly why I don't read autoblog anymore. The average IQ seems to have fallen way, way, down over there.

That's a shame about the recall, the Escape is undergoing something unpleasantly similar to the 1st gen Focus in terms of the number of recalls. And Ford seems to be selling a lot of them, at least here in California. I see the new Escape every day!

The comments are painful to read. The people on there don't have a clue.

Has Ford given a full press release for this issue?

That engine is cursed. I'm really glad I got the 2.0 in our escape.

People who comment idiotically like that are irritating. They need to learn to think before they speak. But it's depressing that this is the 3rd time that motor has been recalled...

I don't know why they used that engine in those cars anyway.

Where are they made? Is the recall just in the U.S?

makes me wonder how the Fiesta ST will be affected but then again by the time thats released there will have been a fix for the engine. things for the Escape (at least ecoboost equipped models) aren't looking so good to me w/ all these recalls. not a good start for the Fusion either but i'm sure they'll come up w/ something.
