New Delhi,jul 06:
Ford India today said it is recalling 5,397 units of its popular sports utility vehicle EcoSport to rectify faulty front lower control arm and driver and front passenger seat recliner locks.
EcoSport produced at the company’s Chennai plant between May 2017 and June 2017 numbering 4,379 units are being inspected for weld integrity of the front lower control arm, the company said in a statement.
“The weld strength on some of these vehicles may be below Ford specifications, which in rare cases, can potentially affect steering control,” it added.
A control arm set connects the front suspension of the vehicle to its frame.When asked if the company would consider bringing a petrol variant of the XC40, Frump said,”We are looking at the petrol option but 90 per cent of demand in the segment is diesel”.
On the significance of bringing new models, Volvo Cars Vice President Asia Pacific Richard Snijders, “India is clearly the new upcoming force in the automotive business”.
he XC40 is equipped with safety features such as oncoming lane mitigation, driver alerts and roll stability control besides seven airbags. Snijders said the company has set a target by 2020 nobody should be seriously injured or killed in a Volvo car.
The company said it is also writing to owners of 1,018 EcoSport vehicles, manufactured between November 2017 and December 2017, to inspect their cars for driver and front passenger seat recliner locks.
The voluntary inspections are in line with the company’s commitment to deliver world-class quality vehicles to its customers, Ford India said.
