Ford India is recalling 4,379 EcoSport SUVs produced at the company’s Chennai plant between May 2017 and June 2017, to inspect the weld integrity of the front lower control arm.
“The weld strength on some of these vehicles may be below Ford specifications, which in rare cases, can potentially affect steering control,” the company said.
Ford said that they’re also writing to owners of 1,018 EcoSport SUVs, made between November 2017 and December 2017, to inspect the driver and front passenger seat recliner locks. These additional units appear to be the new EcoSport (facelift) that was launched in November 2017.
The voluntary inspections are in line with the company’s commitment to deliver world-class quality vehicles to its customers, the company added.
The most recent update to the new EcoSport was the EcoSport S and EcoSport Signature Edition, launched in May 2018.
