Ford Australia has recalled 342 examples of its 2019 Focus, citing a potential wiring fault which could cause the car to lose engine power without warning.

The affected vehicles were manufactured between 28 September 2018 and 16 May 2019 (Model Year 2019).

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “Damage to the wiring loom may lead to reduced engine power and engine stall. This can increase the risk of injury and death of vehicle occupants and other road users in an accident.”

“Ford will contact owners of all affected vehicles to arrange for inspection and repair, free of charge,” the notice adds.
