Ford Orders Recall Over Potential SUV Gas Leak

Ford Orders Recall , Over Potential SUV Gas Leak. ABC reports that Ford has ordered a recall for almost 43,000 small SUVs due to a potential risk of fire. . The recall impacts some Bronco Sport SUVs from 2022 and 2023, as well as 2022's Escape SUVs. . According to Ford, gasoline can leak from fuel injectors near or onto hot engine surfaces, which increases the risk of starting fires. The recall does not reportedly include repairing any potential fuel leak, which the company claims only impacts about 1% of their SUVs. ABC reports that Michael Brooks, executive director of the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety, has called Ford's decision a "Band-aid type recall.". Brooks claims that even a 1% failure rate is high and places drivers at potential risk for a crash. The NHTSA said that it lacks legal authority to pre-approve recall fixes. . The agency added that it would, "closely track their performance using field data.". However, Brooks suggests that Congress needs to change laws so that the NHTSA can , "require something more than the rubber stamp that NHTSA is currently deploying.”. That is a post-remedy inquiry that won't make the fixes better, and further stretches out the process and leaves consumers in limbo. , Michael Brooks, executive director of the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety, via ABC
