DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling 2,124 2014 Ford Escape SUVs in North America because of a potential problem with the panorama glass roof, the company said on Tuesday.

The glass "may have an improperly cured urethane bond between the glass and the attaching bracket," said Ford in a statement provided to Edmunds.

The problem may "result in noise, water leakage or separation of the glass panel from the vehicle, potentially increasing the risk of an accident or injury."

No accidents or injuries have been attributed to this defect, Ford said.

The affected vehicles were built from October 15, 2013 through October 22, 2013 at the Louisville Assembly Plant.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Ford dealers will replace the front roof glass panel if the date and sequence number located on the glass label fall within the suspect build range. The recall will begin the week of July 14. Owners can contact Ford at (800) 392-3673.

Edmunds says: This recall begins next week, but if you're having a problem with one of these vehicles in the meantime, get it into your dealership immediately.
