Ford recalls EcoSport, issues 2 voluntary safety recalls

EcoSport Black Edition (2)

Ford India recently issued a recall for the Figo and Figo Aspire and now once again issued a recall this time for the EcoSport.

The company is recalling EcoSports from 2 different years for 2 different issues.

  1. To correct potential concerns with approximately 48,000 EcoSport diesel vehicles made between April 2013 and June 2014, to install a new bundle clip on the fuel and brake lines.
  2. To replace bolts that do not meet Ford’s material specification of approximately 700 EcoSport vehicles, made between January 2016 and February 2016

Official Ford India Statement

“In its commitment to quality and complete transparency, Ford India is issuing two voluntary safety recalls to correct potential concerns with certain Ford EcoSport vehicles.

The first recall covers approximately 48,000 EcoSport diesel vehicles, made between April 2013 and June 2014, to install a new bundle clip on the fuel and brake lines.

Ford India is also writing to customers of approximately 700 EcoSport vehicles, made between January 2016 and February 2016, and fitted with a 60/40 rear folding seat. On certain vehicles, the 40% rear seat backrest might have been assembled with bolts that do not meet Ford’s material specification, potentially causing the bolts to break.

There have been no customer complaints, accidents or injuries as a result of either of these concerns. Ford India is asking owners of the affected EcoSport vehicles to contact their local Ford dealer so that the necessary rework can be carried out, free of charge.”

Recalls are good but you have to spend the time and fuel!

The recall is free and voluntary but what is annoying is the time and fuel spent to drive the vehicle to the dealership. Hope companies also look at this concern in the future.
