Auto giant Ford India has announced a recall of its Ford Figo and Classic models in the country. The company said that it has called the vehicles in order to rectify issues related to steering and rear suspension. The recall will be impacting different batches of Figo and Classic models, which were manufactured between January 2010 and June 2012.
Ford India in a statement said, “Ford India is extending its existing voluntary Field Service Action (FSA) and will recall the remaining batches of Ford Figo and Ford Classic models to inspect them for potential issues related to the Rear Twist Beam (RTB) and the Power Assisted Steering (PAS) Hose”. The statement went on to say that the 1.09,469 units of the Figo and 22,453 units of the Ford Classic have to be recalled, as they require inspection.
The statement said that the vehicles do not necessarily need any part replacement. Ford India also stated that the Power Steering Hose of the Figo and the Classic – which were sold in India from January 2010 to August 2010 and from March 2011 to November 2011 – will be inspected and replaced in the end.
The company added that this is to ensure the safety and satisfaction of their customers by inspecting and replacing any potentially affected parts as required.
