Ford has recently announced a recall for some units of the Focus EV and C-Max Hybrid and Energi, because of a problem with a sensor not detecting the driver’s door.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 23,830 units of the Ford Focus Electric, C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi vehicles will be affected by this recall in North America and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem solved. The NHTSA says that in the models equipped with the push-button ignition, the vehicles won’t make a noise when the driver’s door is open and they are in violation with federal regulations.
The recall may not be as silly as the one issued by Honda with its Odyssey, but it’s quite close because the chime is supposed to help drivers remind not the leave their key fobs in the car. The total number of Ford Focus Electric, Ford C-Max Hybrid and Ford C-Max Energi stands at 23,830 and out of these, approximately 22,900 units have been sold in the United States, and the remaining 900 in Canada. The recall is expected to begin soon and owners will be notified by mail.
