Ford: 9 recalls involving 8 models in 2017

Ford announced 9 recalls affecting 8 models in 2017 according to the Rapex database. The Ranger was the most often recalled Ford, followed by the Focus, C-Max, Kuga and Mustang models. The oldest cars recalled were the 2003 Focus CNG and C-Max CNG.

In 2017, Ford recalled family cars, vans, off-road as well as sports coupes. Most defects were identified in Ranger pick-ups and included gearbox, seat and gear cable assembly issues.



2015-2016 Mondeos suffered from a possible seatbelt pretensioner cable rupture while Kuga models made between 2012-2014 could have a defective pretensioner inflator that could ignite the insulation in the door pillar. Sport models like the Ford Mustang and GT did not avoid issues with airbag inflators.

It is worth mentioning that the recall also affected the old Ford CNG vehicles. In these, a multi-valve of the CNG system could corrode and pose a risk of fire or even cause an explosion of the tank. The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
