I heard on the news today that Ford is recalling the Escape SUV to fix oil leaks that can cause fires: Fuel, oil leak fire risk leads to Ford Escape recall affecting more than 160,000 SUVs - NY Daily News http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/26/us-autos-ford-recall-idUSBRE9AP0ST20131126 Fuel and oil leaks have led to 13 fires. These are fires that happen without the car being in an accident. This is the 7th recall of the Escape SUV. In the last week I have been asked almost daily if my Tesla has caught on fire yet. I am glad I do not have the chance of oil and gas leaks causing a fire!
