Ford recalls 58,000 Focus cars due to problems with the fuel tank



The Ford Motor Company recalls around 58,000 Ford Focus cars because of potential fuel tank issues.

CNN reports that the recall concerns certain Ford Focus 2012 and 2017 models, as well as some Focus ST 2013-14 models in North America.

"The powertrain software for some of these cars may not work properly, which could distort the fuel tank," CNN reported.

"If this happens, the customer may see a malfunction light, an inaccurate or erratic fuel gauge, motor problems or loss of power," says a Ford statement. "Ford is not aware of an accident or injury related to this disease."

CNN reports that the problem is related to another October recall, in which Ford has recalled nearly 1.5 million Focus cars for the same problem. Ford says some cars were poorly maintained for the recall, which led the company to issue another, CNN said.

Ford says anyone concerned can hand over their car to their dealership, which should allow them to reprogram the software and replace the affected parts.
