Vehicles Affected: Approximately 329,000 model-year 2010-12 Ford Escape SUVs manufactured between Feb. 26, 2009, and April 29, 2012, at the automaker's Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, and model-year 2010-11 Mercury Mariner SUVs manufactured between Feb. 25, 2009, and Dec. 12, 2010, also at the Kansas City plant; all affected vehicles are equipped with 3.0-liter flex-fuel engines.
The Problem: The fuel delivery module fuel supply port could develop a crack, causing a possible fuel leak, which in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. Ford stated that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
The Fix: Dealers will check for potential fuel leaks and replace the fuel delivery module flange assembly for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 for more info.
