Ottawa, ON. – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Ford models.


Units Affected 2,193

Escape 2013

On certain vehicles, the carpet padding in the driver’s foot area may have been installed incorrectly during vehicles assembly. This would cause the carpet and center console trim panel to be slightly closer to the accelerator pedal than originally intended. As a result, the driver may shift his/her foot slightly to the left of the designed position and, when transferring the foot from the accelerator to the brake pedal, may inadvertently contact the side of the brake pedal. This could cause a delay in brake pedal application, which could increase stopping distance, possibly causing a crash resulting in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will remove the carpet padding and replace the left-side console trim panel.
