Ford Recalls Fusions, Focuses

By Staff Writer March 31, 2018

Ford Motor recalling 5,361 2013-14 Ford Fusion vehicles equipped with a 1.6L GTDI engine and 6-speed manual transmission and 2015-16 Ford Focus vehicles equipped with a 1.0L GTDI engine and 6-speed manual transmission.

Also included are four 2017 Ford Focus vehicles that had clutch replacements with potentially affected parts. 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 the Focus vehicles with software that detects and prevents prolonged clutch slip, and will replace the clutch, as necessary, free of charge. Owners of Fusion vehicles will have their clutch assembly replaced free of charge.

Parts are not currently available. Owners will be notified of the recall with an interim notification that began March 26.

A second letter will be mailed when the remedy is available, currently expected to be in the second quarter of 2018.

Ford's number for this recall is 18S07.
