Ford Updates Transmission Recall

By Staff Writer December 12, 2018

Ford Motor Co. is recalling certain 2016-18 Ford Focus vehicles equipped with a 1.0L Fox GTDI engine and a 6-speed manual transmission.

The clutch may fracture, resulting in damage to the transmission assembly and possibly a transmission fluid leak.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will update vehicles with software that detects and prevents prolonged clutch slip, and will replace the clutch, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Jan. 7.

Ford's number for this recall is 18S07. This recall is an expansion of Recall 18V-169.
