Ford Motor Company is recalling about 700 model year 2020 Ford Escape cars over malfunctioning tyre pressure monitoring system.

The company says the system may function in a reduced capacity and intermittently fail to give the driver an adequate warning of low air pressure in the rear tyres.

It disclosed that driving with low tyre pressure could lead to poor vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.

On what to do in correcting the error, Ford will contact the affected vehicle owners, and dealers will replace the body control module.

In the meantime, owners may contact Ford Customer Service on (866) 436-7332, and Ford’s number for this recall is 20S59.
