Chennai, May 20 (IANS) Ford India on Friday said it is recalling around 48,700 EcoSport vehicles to fix potential safety concerns.
In a statement, Ford India said it is issuing two voluntary recalls. “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,” the company said.
The company is also writing to owners of around 700 EcoSport vehicles made between January 2016 and February 2016, and fitted with a 60/40 rear folding seat.
On certain vehicles, the 40 percent rear seat backrest might have been assembled with bolts that do not meet Ford’s material specification, potentially causing the bolts to break, the company said.
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.
