Saw this on the news this morning.
Ford Motor (NYSE: F) is issuing one safety recall and two safety compliance recalls in North America. Details are as follows:
Ford issues safety recall for certain 2015-2016 Ford Focus Electric vehicles to install new transmission differential assembly
Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 900 2015-2016 Ford Focus Electric vehicles to install a new transmission differential assembly equipped with a friction-reducing coating on both the pinion shaft and pinion gear bores. In certain vehicles, it is possible the differential pinion shaft could wear out, resulting in a shaft fracture that would cause the vehicle to lose motive power without warning while driving and transmission park function without warning increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2015-2016 Ford Focus Electric vehicles built at Michigan Assembly Plant, Aug. 20, 2015 through April 13, 2016, and Saarlouis Assembly Plant, Feb. 28, 2016 through March 30, 2016. There are 949 vehicles affected including 865 in the United States and 66 in Canada.
Dealers will install a new transmission differential assembly equipped with a friction-reducing coating on both the pinion shaft and pinion gear bores at no cost to the customer.
