Ford to 2013 Escape Owners: Stop Driving, Immediately.

It’s never a good sign when an automaker tells you to stop driving your vehicle immediately.

_ Ford said the engine compartment fuel line could split and leak fuel, which could cause the SUV to go up in smoke. The affected vehicles are equipped with the 1.6L EcoBoost engine and total about 11,500 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada._

Ford is so concerned about these fires they don’t even want you driving to the dealership for repairs. Instead, they’ll arrange to have your Escape towed. Seriously.
