It’s been a rough year so far when it comes to recalls for Ford. In fact, not a month has gone by that the Blue Oval hasn’t issued one. So it continues: This time, more than 100,000 Escape SUVs and Maverick pickup trucks, plus Corsair SUVs from its luxury brand Lincoln, are being recalled over a potential engine compartment fire.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2020-22 Escapes, 2022 Mavericks and 2021-22 Corsairs equipped with 2.5-liter hybrid or plug-in hybrid engines. In the event of engine failure, oil and fuel vapor could leak into the engine compartment, accumulate near ignition sources — such as the hot engine — and potentially cause a fire.

Owners of affected vehicles are advised to park and shut off the vehicle immediately if they hear unexpected noises coming from the engine, notice a change in power or see smoke.

Dealers will modify the under-engine shield and active grille shutter, as needed, for free. Ford will begin notifying owners Aug. 8, 2022; those with further questions in the meantime can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 (Ford’s number for this recall is 22S47), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
