Ford EcoSport recalled

Ford is recalling 1029 EcoSport crossovers as the hood insulator material could come in contact with the engine, igniting a fire.


Ford is recalling its 2013-17 EcoSport crossover due to a fire risk.

“The hood insulator may become damaged and come in contact with hot engine components resulting in an engine bay fire,” the company says in its recall notice.

“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.”

Ford will contact you in writing if you own an affected vehicle.

You’ll then need to make an appointment with a Ford dealership for a free inspection and repair.

If you have any further questions, you can contact Ford’s Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672.
