2012 to 2018 Ford Fusions Subject to Recall
Ford Motor is recalling 1.46 million Ford Focus cars in North America.
The auto manufacturer says a defect in certain 2012 through 2018 Ford Focus cars could lead to stalling.
Specifically, the Focus vehicles targeted are equipped with the 2-liter GDI and 2-liter GTDI engines.
Consumers who own these vehicles are also being asked to keep their fuel tanks at least half full until their cars are fixed.
The problem involves a defective canister purge valve that may become stuck in an open position. If this happens, it could cause a deformation of the fuel tank. Additionally, the defect could cause the vehicle to stall and not restart or may become difficult to restart. Signs of this problem include an indicator light or a fuel gauge delivering inaccurate levels.
Roughly 1.28 million cars in the U.S., 136,000 in Canada and 45,000 in Mexico are subject to the recall.
Ford has not been notified of any crashes connected to the defect.
The repairs will be done by Ford dealers for free. The affected vehicles will have their powertrain module reprogrammed by technicians with new software. They will also replace various parts, including the canister purge valve, if necessary.
