Ford Motor Company is recalling 11,500 of its 2013 Escape model SUV's due to a fuel line problem. The fuel lines can crack and spill gasoline, causing the engine to catch on fire.

The recall only pertains to models with the 1.6 liter, 4-cylinder engine that were built from early April through July 11. In a rare move, the company is actually telling drivers to stop driving the vehicle immediately.

Honda is recalling over 321,000 CR-V small SUV and Acura ILX models because the doors won't close. The recall of 314,000 CR-Vs from the 2012 model year and 7,300 Acura ILX cars from the 2013 model year.

Honda says if the inside driver or passenger door handles are used at the same time as the power or manual door locks, the inner door latch may not work. No crashes or injuries have been reported. Honda will send letters to owners to notify them and dealers will fix them if needed.

Money ruins friendships.

It's a bold statement to make but a new survey by CouponCabin says 31 percent of adults who responded to the survey said they spent more money on their friends than what their friends spent on them in a given year.

Twenty percent said they "broke up" with a friend due to a money dispute. And 22 percent said they declined being in a bridal party because they couldn't afford it.
