Ford Australia is recalling a total of 691 examples of its Fiesta and Focus due to a manufacturing issue that may cause an oil leak.

This recall affects Fiesta and Focus models produced during 2019 and 2022.

“Due to a manufacturing issue, the right-hand engine oil separator may have been damaged prior to engine assembly and may result in an oil leak,” says the company in its recall notice.

“An oil leak in the presence of an ignition source may cause a vehicle fire. If this was to occur, vehicle occupants may identify an oil smoke odour when driving or smoke emanating from the underhood area.”

If you own an affected vehicle, Ford will contact you in writing requesting you to schedule in a free fix at your preferred authorised Ford dealer.

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