Ford Escape Recall: Everything You Need to Know

Ford Motor Company has recalled certain 2020 and 2021 Ford Escapes. The affected vehicles of the 2020 Ford Escape Recall may have an improperly crimped diffuser in the side curtain airbags. This can cause the diffuser to detach from the inflator in the event of an airbag deployment.

The problem with some 2021 Ford Escapes is that the fuel delivery module may leak inside the fuel tank. This can cause low fuel pressure, which could result in an engine stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.

If you drive one of these vehicles, you need to get it checked as soon as possible. Instead of contacting your local Ford dealer to take care of this, why not use DoNotPay?
