Ford Recalls 572,795 Troubled Focus Cars

November 2002

Ford Motor Co. recalled an estimated 572,795 2000 and 2001 model Focus cars because of safety problems including engine fires.

Ford said the recalls related to two separate issues and could have safety consequences.

1. The first issue involves a bolt in the front suspension assembly that can become loose leading to separation of the ball joint, consumers may be alerted by noise and vibration.

2. The second issue is Focus vehicles with Zetec engines which have defective and poorly placed battery cables can lead to engine fires and wire melting.

Two accidents are alleged to have been caused by loose or missing front suspension bolts.

Ford announced in September that it would offer a "powertrain coverage plan" for the 2003 model Focus good for five years or 100,000 miles, which can be transferred between owners.

If you have a 2000 or 2001 Ford Focus you should see your dealer about the needed repairs.
