15 recalls for 12 Ford models in 2019


In 2019, Ford announced 15 recalls involving 12 models through the EU Rapex system. The Ford Focus was the most recalled model.


We’ve sorted all 2019 recalls according to the model into a table below.

Six recalls were announced by Ford for the Focus model, while four of them relate to its latest generation. Faults such as a brake pedal hinge bolt breakage, untightened bolts securing the front suspension, or incorrectly fixed rear door lock Bowden cable (Estate) can be a surprise to some.



Ford announced the largest recall in 2019 due to a cracking clutch pressure plates with vehicles equipped with the 1.0-L, 1.5-L or 1.6-L EcoBoost petrol engines and a 6-speed manual transmission. It applies to Focus, C-Max, Galaxy, S-Max, Mondeo, Kuga and Transit Connect models. The recall has been announced twice in 2019 – see this article for more details.

The second larger Ford’s recall includes Mondeo, Galaxy and S-Max models manufactured between January 2014 to January 2019. Due to a possible battery acid leakage from the negative terminal, the copper sulphate may accumulate around the minus pole, which may increase resistance and cause surrounding material to heat up to a point where it ignites, resulting in a fire.

We’ve written about some problems in more detail in separate articles.
