Ford Focus Recalls 58,000 Vehicles Software Problem Leads to Deformed Fuel Tank

RECALL: Ford Motor Co. Says Some Focus Models Need to be Repaired

Ford Focus LogoFord Motor Co. has issued a recall for roughly 58,000 Ford Focus cars due to a glitch that could potentially deform the vehicles’ fuel tank.

Owners of certain 2012 and 2017 Ford Focus models and some 2013-14 Focus ST models made in North America are affected.

The auto maker says the powertrain software in some of these cars may not be functioning properly and this could potentially lead to the fuel tank becoming deformed.

The vehicle’s malfunction indicator light may alert the vehicle’s owner or if they are experiencing inaccurate or erratic fuel gauge indication this could be a sign. Other indicators that this problem may affect the vehicle include drivability concerns or loss of motive power, according to Ford. “Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.”

If your vehicle is subject to this recall, Ford is asking that you take the car to your dealership to be reprogrammed and or to have parts that were affected replaced.
