    I am pretty suire it will not, the recall is listed for a few months of Escape production in 2012. The same engine is used in the Fusion, and that is not listed for the recall.

    OK but if you read the full article it mentions that one Fusion also had an engine fire. Hopefully the problem was fixed with the development of the Fiesta ST.

    The Ford release says the following;
    "Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured from October 5, 2011, through July 11, 2012, and equipped with a 1.6L engine subject to prior safety recall NHTSA 12V-336. In some cases, the engine compartment fuel line may have been installed incorrectly when repaired under the prior recall. The misinstalled fuel line could chafe and eventually leak fuel"

    This was from Autoblog earlier today. Nothing listed about the Fusion and says the recall is for Escapes that were recalled and fixed incorrectly.

    Let's hope we don't have to. Cracking cylinder heads? No thank you.
