Ford Recalls Suv. Is Mazda Too In The List?


Recommended Posts

Ford is recalling about 490,000 vehicles to fix defects that can cause fires or loss of power.

The action covers 205,896 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans and 244,530 Ford Escape SUVs in the U.S. and about 40,000 Escapes outside the U.S., according to statements on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website and from Dan Pierce, a Ford spokesman.

The Escape recall follows another in 2007 during which Ford said some of the vehicles may not have been properly repaired. The minivan recalls followed an investigation by the U.S. auto-safety regulator.

The 2001- and 2002-model Escape SUVs may have brake-fluid leaks from the caps of their brake master cylinder reservoirs, leading to corrosion that may cause fire, according to the company.

Ford is recalling 2004- and 2005-model Freestar and Monterey minivans because the torque converter output shafts in their powertrains may fail and cause a sudden loss of power.

Mazda confirms separation from ford (since 2010). After 30 years Mazda cancel technology sharing agreement with ford. Tribute is discontinued since last year and the newest member of the Mazda’s family is the CX-5 witch comes with Mazda’s Skyactiv Technology. ;)
