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.
SEMA car show Vegas
The upcoming SEMA Car Show will be hosted by the Las Vegas Convention Centre and will be open from 5th November until the 8th November 2013.
The show is part of the Automotive Aftermarket Week and is expected to attract around 100,000 attendees from all over the world. SEMA stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association, but its true colors are better indicated by its original title of Speed Equipment Market Association, downgraded by the authorities as being inappropriate in our modern age. It really is about tuning cars, and there will be many highly tuned cars on display along with the opportunity to get behind the wheel in some of them.
As the show will demonstrate, the modern tuning industry is more sophisticated than it used to be, and it is possible to tune a car without turning it into a carbon belching gas guzzler that used to be the case. Highly sophisticated electronic equipment will be on display that can not only make a car go faster, it can also make it more efficient.
