The 2013 Escape and Fusion equipped with the 1600cc engine were the target of a voluntary recall due to the risk of a fire starting in the engine. The reason of the overheating is still unknown but the dealerships will provide rental cars at no additional charge.

The recall affects 73.320 Escapes and 15.833 Fusions across the U.S.A. and Canada. Ford has acknowledged the problem and said the following about it:
"We have identified an issue and are taking actions in the best interest of our customers, Steve Kenner, director of Ford’s automotive safety office, said in a statement. “It is important that affected customers not ignore this recall and contact their dealer as soon as possible.
