A couple of days ago, news sites started covering the recall for Ford Focus (2011-2015) due to an issue with the fuel tank. Words like ‘safety risk’ and ‘fire’ were tossed around, so I got in touch with Ford to find out if my little Focus was going to try and kill me.
I was told to wait for a letter from Ford, which would cover the recall and possible repair.
This is not the first issue with my car – earlier this year the clutch was replaced as it suffered from the same problem that the ACCC are taking Ford to court over.
I love my little car, and the fuel tank thing is unlikely to be an issue for me as it’s only worrisome when driven in dusty in environments, but how dusty is too dusty.
Time to check the letterbox again.
