A brake pedal issue that's affecting more than 8,000 SUVs prompted the recall.
The Ford Motor Company announced Sunday it is recalling more than 8,000 of its 2013 Escape compact SUVs because of a potential problem affecting the brake pedal, according to WTAE as reported by CNN.

That reduced clearance may mean the driver's foot could brush the side of the brake pedal when going from the accelerator to the brake, thus increasing stopping distances and the risk of a crash.
