Ford recall affects late model Escapes, C-Max hybrids

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There are more problems with the Louisville built Ford Escape.

Ford is recalling nearly 700,000 2013 and 14 Escape SUVs as well as C-Max hybrids to correct a couple of problems.

First, a software glitch can stop the side curtain air bags from inflating in some rollover crashes.

A second problem with a door handle latch could make the doors hard to close which could lead to them opening while driving. It affects many of the same Escapes.

Ford has had to recall Escapes several times for other problems in the past.
