Ford has issued a recall for 433,000 vehicles, affecting three different nameplates.

The company is calling back certain 2015 Focus, C-MAX and Escape vehicles over an issue with the body control module. In the affected vehicles, it is possible that the engine will continue to run even after the key has been turned to the “off” position.

Ford says that it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to this issue. Dealers will update the body control module free of charge to fix the issue.

    Recall ... again. My C-Max was just in about three weeks ago for some other safety recall concerning "software" job. This if my car is effected by the recall will be #5 in 3 years. Hey ALL automakers, lets do this ... build cars simple again, drop all the computerization and then guess what ? Customer approval of your brand will grow. As a child of the 1960's I've seen quite a few changes in vehicles, and not all have been good. Maybe it's time to get back to the options where hi-tech meant an am/fm, cd/cassette players is the only thing in the dash board drawing attention from the driver. And Cell Phone Users that talk/text an drive ... you really wouldn't want me to be on the jury concerning a auto wreck where you were texting/talking and not paying attention.

      They really just don't make cars like they used to. I own a 97 Ford Eploxer. 260,000 miles and still soldiering! But that's when they built their cars solid.
