Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for nearly 1.4 million 2013-2014 model Escape and C-Max vehicles due to issues with both airbag deployment and door handles.
According to the company, a computer glitch may delay the deployment of airbags in rollover accidents, increasing the risk of serious or fatal injury. Improper latching of door handles was also cited as a safety concern, as this issue can allow doors to open while the vehicle is in motion.
