Ford recalls 2013 Escapes and Fusions with 1.6L EcoBoost engines.

Ford is voluntarily calling back 2013 Ford Escapes and Ford Fusions, because of a fire hazard associated with the 1.6L EcoBoost engine.  The carmaker says there have been reports of overheating and fires in models with the engine. 

The problem doesn't affect other model years, or Escapes and Fusions with different engines.  Ford says they are working to fix the problem.

Ford is asking affected owners to contact a dealer as soon as possible to arrange for a loaner vehicle at no charge.

This isn't the first problem Ford has had with the EcoBoost engines.  Ford recalled more than 6,000 2013 Escape crossovers in September because of a problem with the fuel line.
