Ford—Ford Fiesta Econetic
What are the defects?
A small number of vehicles could have a brass blanking plug fitted to the exhaust system that may not retain torque. Under certain circumstances, there is a possibility that this plug may become loose, allowing exhaust gases to escape.
What are the hazards?
The potential exists for the occupants of the vehicle to be exposed to exhaust gases, which are poisonous.
What should consumers do?
Ford will write to owners of affected vehicles.
Owners are advised to contact their authorised dealership for inspection and rectification.
