Several vehicles made by Ford are subjected to a recall which has been announced by the carmaker recently.
According to the North American based automaker, there are several Ford vehicles which are subjected to a new recall. These are the Focus, the C-Max and the Escape and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with their engines. The car manufacturer is stating that the affected models are suffering from a glitch which will allow the engine to run after turning the ignition key to the “off” position or after pressing the Engine Start/Stop button.
“Certain 2015 Focus vehicles built at Michigan Assembly Plant from June 17, 2014, through June 12, 2015; certain 2015 C-MAX vehicles built at Michigan Assembly Plant from April 22, 2014, through June 12, 2015; and certain 2015 Escape vehicles built at Louisville Assembly Plant from April 1, 2014, through June 12, 2015”, said Ford.
The total number of affected models stands at approximately 433,000 units and there are 374,781 in the United States and federalized territories, 52,180 units in Canada and 5,135 in Mexico. The problem will be fixed by updating the body control module software. This will be made at no cost to the customer. The recall is expected to begin soon but an exact date hasn’t been provided at this point. If you happen to be the owner of such a model, you should contact your local Ford dealership for more info.
