16-18-overview

Only two Dacia and Ford recalls were announced through the Rapex rapid alert system at the 16th week of 2018.

The first one recall concerns the Dacia Dusters equipped with an after-sales towbar at authorized service, and built between the December 2016 and June 2017. Incorrect contact may occur between the towing harness and the trailer coupling. This could lead to failure of the trailer lights while driving without any warning to the driver. Actually, since the last Duster recall only a few weeks have passed. Start/stop system malfunction was reported at the beginning of April.

The second recall of the last week concerns the owners of Ford Ranger pickups made in 2011. The clip fixing wiring harness under the car is located so close to the driveshaft, that it can damage it. In the extreme cases, the driving force may be lost and the vehicle could stop. Because of the possible damage to the driveshaft the Ford Ranger was recalled also back in November 2017. At that time, the recall concerned vehicles manufactured from November 2015 to February 2016 and the driveshaft could be damaged by gearshift cables.
