Ford Recalls Focus
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
recall has been initiated by Ford on their Focus hatchback cars with manual transmissions.
The recall has been put on about 74,000 of their products in the United
States and Canada. Ford claims that the recall has been put in place because
the hatches on their product can be opened with too much ease while the
vehicles are in motion because the hatch can be released with the push
of just one button when the car is moving at a rate slower than four mph.
According to safety standards put in place by the federal government,
a hatch must be controlled by two actions rather than just one. It is
unknown if any injuries have resulted from the defective hatchback.
