American automaker Ford has recalled around 39,315 cars in India. The recalled vehicles include the Ford Fiesta Classic and previous-generation Ford Figo that were manufactured at Ford's facility in Chennai between 2004 and 2012. The cars have been recalled to inspect a potential failure in the high-pressure power steering hose. The cars will be inspected at Ford's authorised dealerships, and if found faulty, the high-pressure power assisted steering hose will be replaced on all affected vehicles. If you own one of the recalled vehicles, we advise you to take it to the nearest Ford dealership as soon as possible.
The statement issued by the automaker reads, "Ford India is voluntarily inspecting 39,315 Ford Fiesta Classic and previous-generation Ford Figo vehicles, made at the company’s Chennai plant between 2004 and 2012, for a potential concern related to high-pressure power assisted steering hose. Ford India, through its dealers, will replace the high-pressure power assisted steering hose on all affected vehicles. Ford remains committed to delivering world-class quality vehicles to its customers and this voluntary safety recall is part of that commitment.”
Both the cars, the Fiesta Classic and previous-generation Ford Figo, have been discontinued long back in India. Currently, Ford is offering second-generation Figo in the Indian market which starts from Rs 4.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Also, the Aspire is the only sedan from Ford on offer in the country which starts at Rs 5.45 lakh. Moreover, recently, Ford also discontinued all the manual variants of the Endeavour. Now the Endeavour has a starting price of Rs 25.49 lakh.
