2017 Ford Escape Recalled to Update Power-Window Software

DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling about 23,150 2017 Ford Escape SUVs in North America to update the power-window software, the company said Wednesday.

"The power-window system configuration may exceed the regulatory requirement for remote-actuation closing force, increasing the risk of injury," Ford said in a statement.

No injuries or accidents are linked to the recall.

The affected Escape SUVs were built from October 5, 2015, to May 12, 2016.

Ford dealers will perform the repair for free. A date has not been announced for the recall. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.

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

Edmunds says: Owners of the 2017 Escape should stay in touch with their dealer on the best time to schedule a service appointment.
