Ford has issued a recall for 4397 units of the EcoSport that were produced between May - June 2017, in order to inspect the weld integrity on the front lower control arm. The company has said that the weld strength on some of these vehicles may be below Ford specifications, which in rare cases, can potentially affect steering control.
The American automaker is also writing to owners of 1,018 EcoSport vehicles, made between November 2017 and December 2017, to inspect their cars for driver and front passenger seat recliner locks.
In a statement, Ford has said, the voluntary inspections are in line with the company’s commitment to deliver world-class quality vehicles to its customers.
