Alleged Recall of Ford Focus
- From multiple conflicting sources a recall may be in effect for the Ford
Focus. Owners of the 2000-2001 Focus Models should
contact Ford Motor Company or a Ford dealer with their vehicle identification number. Ford
will not confirm a recall unless all consumer information is
stems from corrosion caused by road salt used to melt snow and ice in the
winter. The result is loose rear wheels. The recall covers cars sold in or
currently registered in 21 northern U.S. states and six Canadian provinces
where salt is used on roads.
The Ford Focus has been hit by quality glitches during
the past two years. The 2000 model year alone had undergone seven safety
recalls since it was introduced in mid-1999. Yet the model still has managed
to lure a younger audience than Ford's previous compact, the Escort.
