Ford has just issued a couple of large recalls for a range of products. In total, the recall count between the two we’ll cover here is just over 737,000 vehicles.
First up, we have a recall issued for certain 2020-2022 Ford Escapes and certain 2021-2022 Ford Bronco Sports. Only versions of these models with the 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder are included in the recall, and the final tally is 345,451 cars between the two models.
These cars are being recalled due to a potential oil leak issue. Ford’s recall documents explain that the engine oil separator housing installed on these vehicles “may crack and develop an oil leak.” If this happens, Ford says the leaking oil could leak onto other engine components, increasing the risk of an engine fire. Ford isn’t aware of any injuries or deaths as a result of the oil leak issue. The recall procedure will involve Ford dealers inspecting the oil separator for damage, and replacing it free of charge if needed. Owner notifications are meant to begin on April 18.

The second recall covers trucks and SUVs across a wide spectrum for Ford, as it’s all to do with the trailer braking software installed to these vehicles. Affected vehicles include the 2021-2022 Ford F-150, 2022 Ford Maverick, 2022 Ford Expedition, 2022 Lincoln Navigator and many levels of 2022 F-Series Super Duty, including the F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550. This recall encompasses 391,836 vehicles in total.

A software error in the trailer brake program could result in the trailer brake controller not properly applying the trailer brakes “when towing a trailer equipped with an electric or electric-over-hydraulic brake.” As one might expect, Ford says this could result in longer stopping distances than you’d otherwise expect, increasing the risk of a crash.

To fix the issue, you’ll need to bring your vehicle into the dealership where Ford will flash new software to the truck. Ford says owner notifications will go out on April 18 this year.

Why do I cringe at 3 cylinder engines? Sounds so 60's European - LOL...

Who buys a Ford Bronco with a 1.5L engine - Never mind... Suburban posers...

I'm not much on 3 cylinder motors either (a Triumph Trident left a bad taste in my mouth) but my kid had a Geo Metro with the 3cyl 1.0l engine. When he sold it, it had over 300k on the engine and had only ever had regular service.

I was getting my 150 serviced this week and dealing with the current recall and they had the new Bronco sitting on the lot. The dealer had added an additional 15 grand to the price above the retail sticker price. Anyone that would fall for paying that above the retail sticker price anytime for any type vehicle has a limited I.Q. And most are financing it. Talk about being upside down long after the new car smell goes away,,,,

Back in the 90's we owned an Acura Vigor with a 2.5L 5-cylinder engine. It was both smooth and adequately powerful, but people marveled at it when I mentioned the odd number of cyinders and relatively small displacement. Had an Acura Legend V6 at the same time and while it easily out-performed the Vigor, I never felt the Vigor was underpowered. Both engines purred so smoothly a glass of water sitting on the air cleaner didn't show a ripple.

My 1965 Ford 2000 tractor has a 3 cylinder engine, but it has a massive flywheel and 158 cubic inches (2.589L) and my first RV was a 2007 Winnebago View on a 2006 Mercedes (Dodge) Sprinter cab/chassis with a 5 cyl diesel.

My 2013 Triumph Trophy SE (British) has a 3 cylinder engine. It's a very efficient, good engine. The thing sometimes gets near 60 MPG, 47 MPG is about the average and has all types of power. When running, it sounds much like a diesel engine, but it runs on 87 octane gasoline.

I suppose the Triumph engineers learned a thing or two since the '70's

I assume the 1970 engineers retired many years ago. There's no way to compare today's motorcycle technology to the old.

Not even a cable in my Triumph anywhere. Not even a throttle cable (done electronically). The shocks self adjust for your weight when you get on the bike . Even a lot of weird stuff such as the engine automatically goes to idle when the (ABS) brakes are applied. Traction control. All type of modern technology that didn't exist much back in the 1970's.

Don't get me wrong, last year when I was thinking about buying another bike, the Triumph T120 was #2 on my list.
My wife and I each had a 650 Bonneville back in the day, and I still have the tattoo to prove it. I just wouldn't have had a Trident back then. Crankshaft design was wonky and center cylinder cooling problems happened. The engineers of today have solved those problems with horizontally split cases and liquid cooling.
As far as fly by wire and ABS and traction control, I was a GM dealership tech for over 20 years before I opened my hot rod shop and all that stuff is pretty much old hat to me. Heck, even my '00 Bounder has ABS. Nice to see it making it onto a two wheeled platform.

What was number one on your list?

I cannot say I have a favorite bike, I kinda like them all. But I think I enjoy riding my Energica electric the most. I was out on it for most of the afternoon yesterday.

BTW, WRT recalls, the Triumph Trophy SE had one after the other. But Triumph did a great job of fixing them all.

A newly designed vehicle often has many recalls--especially motorcycles. 2012 was the first year it was made, which means the 2013 model year in the USA (is the same 2012 model in England).

I was being very picky. I wanted a 1979 10th Anniversary edition 750 Honda. I actually found one in really great shape somewhere in the LA area. Guy agreed to hold it for me until I headed down to SD for the winter. At the end of the deal, I decided that having to deal with the motor home, a trailer, the Jeep and the bike was just too much work for this old man and called off the purchase.
That 750 was the last bike I owned before I got into Harleys. #3 on the list was a '79 Harley Shovelhead EG, but I was never actually serious about that one.

like the mess ford is in now with their trannys

Ford has a history of .... Paying for not doing the right thing.
My mother worked for a parts supplier.. Both ford and GM use on-line ordering systems
GM spent weeks sending Test orders through to verify the system worked before going live.
Ford: Dump it in and we will see. Why do I think this same mentality extends beyond ordering supplies.
Back in the 60/70s Many companies adopted the policy of 'Ship it and we can fix it under warranty"
Some of those companies are no longer around as a result.

I will never understand how a simple thing like the wiper arm recallin my 2029 F-250 and no parts…months after the recall. Say nothing about no parts (a washer) in some F-250 trannies.
