DETROIT (AP) According to the article Ford Motor Company is recalling more than 10,000 redesigned 2013 Escape SUVs to fix carpet padding that could get in the way of braking.

Dealers will remove the carpet padding and replace a console trim panel at no charge. The article goes onto say that Ford recall covered 8,266 vehicles in the U.S. and affected about 2,000 vehicles in Canada and a couple of hundred in Mexico.
