Ford Kuga PHEV (2019 – 2020)

Published on 14 August 2020

Internal or charging fault could cause the High Voltage (HV) battery pack to vent hot gas.

As such gases have not been routed away from other components, they will cause them to exceed their designed working temperatures. Overheating of components such as the fuel tank and fuel lines will increase the risk of the vehicle catching fire.

The Ford Kuga Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) models affected by this recall were fitted with a High Voltage (HV) battery pack and manufactured between 1 July 2019 and 15 July 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Ford dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

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.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
