What are the defects?

Certain vehicles under particular environmental conditions may ingest excessive levels of dust, which may block the carbon canister during a purge cycle. This could cause the fuel tank to reach vacuum levels that exceed design limits.

What are the hazards?

If this condition is not corrected, the fuel tank may crack, resulting in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can lead to a fire.

What should consumers do?

Ford will write to owners of affected vehicles. Owners are advised to contact their local Ford dealership for an inspection and rectification.

For further information contact any authorised Ford dealer or the Ford Customer Relationship Centre on toll-free 1800 503 672.
