Recalls/TSBs - 2013/14 Ford Escape

If you know of a recall or service notices and bulletins / TSB on the Ford Escape here is the place to list it and share what it is. I think it would help others in dealing with dealerships when trying to service cars for known issues.

Please share!

Fuel Gauge issue/ Lamp indicator

I am bringing in my FE, on Friday and going to get the service dept. to apply the TSB 13-02-01 which should fix the 4 gal reserve and the early gas lamp. From what I heard as well will add a quad screen on the info display, showing all trip 1/2 info at once. - I am building my checklist now for the dealer during warranty, its great to be picky. Get the bugs, kill the bugs.

You are very welcome. Hope folks find this helpful.
Sad to report they performed TSB 13-03-02 on mine last week, unfortunately I am still hearing the clunk in the left front end. Dealer is calling Ford to discuss.

6500 Ford Escape, C-Max, Focus Models Recalled for Child Locks - WOT on Motor Trend

6500 Ford Escape, C-Max, Focus Models Recalled for Child Locks


A new report for The Detroit News says that Ford will be recalling more than 6500 vehicles from its 2013 Focus, C-Max, and Escape model lines. The recall is because of child locks that might not activate, even after turning the lock knob on the door.
The Problem: The report states that “the child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal turning force to activate the child lock, and the operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged.” The issue stems from a mixed stock of parts from a supplier, which led to some of the locks being installed incorrectly at the factory during assembly. The Detroit News says that Ford has yet to be notified of any crashes or injuries relating to the faulty locks.
The Fix: Ford will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles later this month. If the child locks were installed incorrectly, dealers will replace the door latch.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: A total of 6534 Focus, C-Max, and Escape vehicles that were built between November 16-21, 2013 at Ford’s Wayne, MI and Louisville, KY plants. 859 of the vehicles were apparently sold in Canada.
Ford representatives were unavailable for comment on the recall at the time of publication.
