The commercial vehicle launch represents a high cost for the car brands. Obviously, any wants its models to suffer from problems or failures, because obviously it will to the detriment of its image and economy. Ford Motor has recently launched its renewed Ka (now including the surname +) and it is about to renew the EcoSport, however was forced to call them to review.
As reported by the American company, the former Ford EcoSport and the new Ka + must pass through its services official to verify a point of safety. This call to review is motivated because these vehicles may have a buckle of the safety harness (of the five squares) that would not fit well in their respective anchors.
If so, there is the possibility that the link is incorrect and in event of impact occupants would not be secured. Thus the occupants of the vehicle could result in death or injuries of consideration. Therefore since the signing they have rushed to inform its customers which to pass as soon as possible by an official service to check your car seat belts.
As it is understandable, this call to review will take place without any cost to the firm’s clients. The procedure to follow will be change some buckles by others (in the five-seater) and check the status of the new to ensure proper operation. The models affected by chassis number are as follows:
Ford EcoSport (chassis): H8621740 to the H8633153
Ford Ka + (chassis): H8439635 to the H8448712
For now this call to review only affects Argentina, but taking into account that both models are also sold in Europe and its components are based on the providers themselves it could be extended to other regions of the world. We will watch if Ford make any call to review for these models in our continent if on the contrary this incidence is limited exclusively to the South American country.
