Ford Recalls Thousands of Foci, C-Maxes, and Escapes

About 433,000 Ford vehicles constructed between April 2014 and June 2015 will be recalled.

The affected vehicles include such models as the Focus and the C-Max, which were produced at the Michigan Assembly Plant. It’s known that the damaged Foci were manufactured between 17 June 2014 and 12 June 2015 and the defective C-Maxes – between 22 April 2014 and 12 June 2015.

Apart from these two models, a flaw was also found in the 2015 Escape CUVs, which were manufactured between 1 April 2014 and 12 June 2015 at the Louisville Assembly Plant (Kentucky). The majority of broken vehicles stay in the United States (374,381) while the rest are registered in Canada (52,180) and Mexico (5,135).

The defect detected is in the body control module software that doesn’t let a driver to turn the engine off; it keeps running even if the key is taken out from the ignition and the start/stop button is activated.

So far, Ford hasn’t been informed of any accidents or injuries due to the module failure. The company addresses those who purchased the aforementioned car models produced within certain periods of time (also specified above) to apply to Ford dealerships to update the body control module software.
