Ford Australia has recalled the EcoSport SUV over concerns about the engine timing belt tensioner.
According to the company, engine vibrations could make the timing belt tensioner fail, resulting in a loss of engine timing. That could lead to damage, or an engine shutdown.
If the engine shuts down on the move, there's a risk of injury to the driver and other road users.
A total of 160 units are impacted by the recall – a VIN list is attached here.
Owners will be contacted by Ford, and advised to contact their dealer for a free inspection and fix.
