Additional information:

Among the 60 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 5,361 model year 2015-2016 Ford Focus vehicles equipped with a 1.0L GTDI engine and 6-speed manual transmission and 2013-2014 Ford Fusion vehicles equipped with a 1.6L GTDI engine and 6-speed manual transmission. The clutch may fracture, resulting in damage to the transmission assembly and possibly a transmission fluid leak.

According to the NHTSA, a transmission fluid leak in the presence of an ignition source such as hot engine or exhaust components can increase the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will update the Focus vehicles with software that detects and prevents prolonged clutch slip, and will replace the clutch, as necessary, free of charge. Owners of Fusion vehicles will have their clutch assembly replaced free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be notified of the recall with an interim notification beginning March 26, 2018. A second letter will be mailed when the remedy is available, currently expected to be in the second quarter of 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18S07.
