If safety is of concern to you, especially if you have precious cargo like children to transport, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) conducts vehicle tests to help consumers determine crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. IIHS also rates vehicles for front crash prevention, systems like what is featured in the video that warn the driver or brake automatically to avoid or mitigate a frontal collision. To see which 2014 and 2015 model year vehicles scored at the top of the list, click here.

1. AFFECTED VEHICLES: 133,000
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Escape vehicles manufactured October 5, 2011, to April 1, 2013, and equipped with 2.0 liter engines and Focus ST vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to October 14, 2013, and equipped with 2.0 liter engines. Insufficient compression in the engine wiring harness splices to the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor may provide incorrect signals to the powertrain control module (PCM).
The incorrect signals could cause the vehicle to hesitate or the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 29, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S17.
