According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 245,000 2001-2002 Ford Escape vehicles after it was discovered that the cylinder reservoir cap can potentially leak brake fluid.
The company recalled the Ford Escape vehicle’s made from October 22, 1999 to July 19, 2002 due to the potential brake fluid leak, which could result in fire or melting if it comes into contact with the antilock brake system wiring. The recall campaign has a recall number 11S24 and is part of the 07V-156 recall.
Consumers with the recalled Ford Escape vehicle models should expect a notification from the company beginning January 13, 2012. Consumers can then receive a free replacement of the faulty part from their Ford dealers. For additional information regarding the recall, contact the company directly at 866-436-7332.
