The 2017 Escape has barely even rolled off dealer lots. Well, you better roll it back because the popular CUV has been recalled with windows that close with too much gusto. The automaker provided very limited information but did say the power window system can exceed the "regulatory requirement for remote actuation closing force."

That's a really fancy way of saying the windows slam. Ford hasn't announced when the recall will begin.
