Over 200,000 Ford Galaxy and S-Max MPVs recalled due to a problem on the rear axle

Ford recalls more than 200,000 Galaxy and S-Max MPVs in Europe. With vehicles manufactured between 20 January 2015 and 18 February 2020, the screw connection of the tie rod of the rear suspension could fail due to corrosion.

According to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), the recall with internal code “20S75” affects 202,696 vehicles. Authorized workshops or contracted partners must check the rear suspension and replace the rear wishbone pins with new parts with higher corrosion resistance. The website kfz-rueckrufe.de states that vehicles that came off the production line at Ford’s Spanish plant in Valencia are affected.

Repeated recall for Focuses

Ford is also announcing a recall with the code “20S74” for 10,145 Focuses. This is obviously a follow-up to last year’s recall with the code “19S50” for cars manufactured between March 2018 to May 2019 due to possible wiring loom damage by a stud on the transmission housing – we wrote here. Repairs made at that time must be re-checked and, if necessary, adjusted.

Due to the risk of damage to the wiring loom, Ford recalled once again in 2020. The recall with the code “20S28” was announced for a Focuses with a two-litre EcoBlue diesel engine and automatic transmission produced between July 2019 to March 2020 – we wrote here. It is not yet known whether this recent recall is also limited to specific engine and transmission combinations.
