By Paul A. Eisenstein, the Detroit Bureau
Ford Motor Co. advises owners of an estimated 11,500 new escapes to park their vehicles until they line leaks can be repaired by dealers due to potential fuel, could cause fires.

New 2013 escape crossover can commercial vehicle Ford's well with consumers but security have made not so good with the supervisory authorities of the Federal Republic, after that recall Detroit maker the second, on which the new model announced in less than a week. Earlier versions of the escape are assemblies also because of concerns about potentially sticky accelerators.

Remember the latest escape is aimed specifically at new 2013 models with 1.6 liter engine of the manufacturer. Other versions are not in the recall, involved where Ford takes the unusual step questions owners can be not made with the vehicle repairs. Retailers offer a loaner vehicle for free and to handle the transport of vehicles to the service bays for repairs.

Reminds in contrast to most where decision makers take up to one month begin to notify owners repair, urges immediate action in this case Ford the manufacturer's safety after Ray Naevi, Assistant Director operations. "As soon as possible repair our intensive investigation and testing the identified problem, and we are moving us vehicles for our customers." "In the meantime, it is extremely important that the affected customers can't ignore this product recall and contact your dealer immediately."

The manufacturer says he knows no injuries as a result of the defect but does not specify when, or may have taken place as many fires due to the possible fuel line leaks.

Ford owner wants to act quickly, not to wait to get the normal notification process. Owners of the 11,500 asks her 2013 escapes from the recall covered, to contact its customer relations at 1-866-436-7332-Center or go online to how to do.

The latest announcement is a further blow to the popular escape line. The new crossover was the target of a recall Monday covering announced 10,000 2013 models that could experience so-called "carpet entrapment," where loose floor mats jam the pedals and lead, that the vehicle by running could control.

Meanwhile, Administration announced beginning a study of 730 000 Ford escape and Mazda Tribute SUVs from the 2001 to 2004 model years this week at the national highway traffic safety. The vehicles could sticky accelerators - ironically, as a result of repairs, which experience due to a previous callback. Still no decision about whether vehicles back order this decided.

This week headlines could a setback, as Ford wants to convince that it has solved the last quality issues it driver behind of the industry as the 2012 j.d. power quality initial survey average in such well-tracked studies have left.

But the industry, usually an increase in the number of recalls in recent months according to industry analysts. This can be the result a crackdown by federal authorities after the Toyota safety scandal of 2009/10.

Honda announced today that it by 172,000 CR-V crossover and Acura ILX limousine door locking problems would remember.
