A Ford Escape Recall Gotcha — Recall 14S05, Transport Canada #201413
Joe Ward

Has Ford resolved this issue…seems so unfair, not to mention unsafe, the aforementioned ‘fix’.

I have a 2008 Ford Escape that has a ‘Power Steering Assist Fault’ warning light on. I still had power steering until I turned the vechicle off, and now have no power steering. I see that there was a recall on this issue and that it can be dangerous.

I live and bought the used Esape here in the U.S. last year, but the vehicle was orignially a Canadian vehicle. When I enter my VIN number, it does not show any recalls, but when I do a search for the problem, it shows that there was a recall on this issue.

Hoping that you may know of updates on this issue.

Thank you so much,
