Tomahawk, WI 12/04/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Recently, Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) said that it had reported the best September monthly sales in history. Not only that, but also its October monthly sales were looking too good, and there was added expectation that 2013 would end yup being a wonderful year for this company in many respects. The company was also on the verge of finding a formula to penetrate the tough European market after gett6ing into an agreement with one of France’s leading carmakers. Just when it seemed everything was going smoothly. Ford had to recall a number of its cars.

Ford’s decision to recall its Cars Laudable

Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) followed a familiar path when it decided to recall its cars. Some of its peers in this industry have developed a knack for recalling their cars due to the tiniest of problems. Cars are not like anything else and they place human life at risk, thus the tendency by their makers to recall them even if they are reported with the tiniest and seemingly insignificant problems or defects. When driving a faulty car, you never get a second chance with your life. The first hint of an accident could be what ends up taking your life or leaving you with a serious life-threatening injury.

Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F)’s 2013 Escape is the car that was recalled this year.  The launch of this car was hailed as one of the special moments of 2013, and when they were recalled, it led to a lot of hue and cry from motor lovers across the U.S. The cars ad not found their way across the world, but the company was on the process of releasing or shipping them to other parts of the globe when it saw the need for recalling them for further work. The company has said it is recalling close to 140,000 of its Ford 2013 Escape due to a defect in its 1.6-liter EcoBoost 4-Cylinder engine.

Ford Recalls Most Cars in the US

The highest number of recalled Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) 2013 Escape is in the U.S, followed by Canada with close to 20,000 cars. The problem with the engine is that it overheads, and this is thought to be risky since the cars could end up bursting into flames, much like what transpired with Tesla’s Model S this year. This is not a matte of conjecture since Ford says twelve fires have already occurred in the U.S due to this problem. Canada has been responsible for about five fires, although no injury has been reported during the same period. Ford wants to keep it that way at the moment.

Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F)’s decision is commendable although some people may look at it differently, by saying that its quality control department should have identified the problem much earlier and rectified it before allowing them to leave the factory. Fiord is yet to issue an official statement regarding what really transpired to a point where the cars left the factories only to end up with defects that could have led to deaths, or debilitating injuries. The company is expected to recover from this small hiccup and after further testing of the cars, they will be released back into the market.
