Ford has issued a recall for 90, 000 of their 2013 Ford Escapes and Ford Fusions due to a fire hazard.

The company says there have been reports of overheating and fires in models with the 1.6 liter eco-boost engine.

This problem does not affect other model years.

If your car is affected, Ford asks that you take it back to the dealer and they'll give you a rental car until the problem is fixed.
