    Recalls: Ford forced to recall Escape over fire risk yet again [UPDATE]
    2013-11-26

    Recalls happen. Automakers hope they won't, but they do. And that's alright, for the most part, because cars are designed (and to a large degree still made) by humans, and humans make mistakes. So we forgive them, as long as the problem is resolved. Only in the case of the Ford Escape, the problem seems to keep coming back. That's why Ford is calling in ...
