Ford recalls India-made EcoSport in US over incorrect brake fluid cap

Ford recalls India-made EcoSport in US over incorrect brake fluid cap

The India-made Ford EcoSport has been recalled in the US over two minor issues. Reports indicate that the affected vehicles were supplied with European-spec fluid reservoir caps and manuals instead of the US versions. Fortunately, the company has not received any reports of accident or injuries associated with the problem. Although the issue is not too serious in nature, the federal motor vehicle safety standards mandates both the reservoir cap and owners’ manuals must be of US versions.

The list for the affected vehicles includes the 2018 EcoSport which was built at Ford’s assembly plant in Chennai between 27 October 2017 and 6 March 2018. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by the dealers and the brake fluid reservoir cap and owners' manual kit will be replaced to match up with the federal motor vehicle safety standards at no additional cost.
