Ford Motor Company has agreed to pay a maximum 17-point-4 million fine to the federal government for delaying the recall of Ford Escape SUV's with gas pedals that could become stuck.

A year ago, Ford recalled 421,000 Escapes in the U.S. for the problem. The settlement indicates that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration believes Ford knew of the problem for some time before alerting the agency and vehicle owners.
