Ford is voluntarily calling back nearly 90,000 2013 Ford Escapes and Ford Fusions, because of a fire hazard. The carmaker said there have been reports of overheating and fires in models with the 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine. The problem doesn't affect other model years, or Escapes and Fusions with different engines. Ford said it's working on a way to fix the problem.  In the meantime, Ford is asking affected owners to contact a dealer as soon as possible to arrange for a loaner vehicle at no charge. This isn't the first problem Ford has had with the EcoBoost engines. Ford recalled more than 6,000 2013 Escape crossovers in September because of a problem with the fuel line.
