A nut securing the Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (mHEV) battery terminal may not have been tightened correctly, which could result in a fault in the electrical connection.
This may lead to the loss of the mHEV function and to local overheating and possible melting of the surrounding components during driving, increasing the risk of fire.
The Ford Focus mHEV models affected by this recall were manufactured between 25 June and 30 November 2020.
Ford recall code: 21S01
Affected models: Focus mHEV
Vehicle numbers (worldwide): 51

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
