commercial launch of a vehicle implies a high economic cost to the car manufacturers. As is logical, any want your models performance problems or failures, obviously to the detriment of its image and economy. Ford Motor has launched recently their renovated Ka (now including the last +) and is about to renew the EcoSport, however has been forced to call them to review.
As reported by the u.s. firm, the above Ford EcoSport and the new Ka+ should go for their services official to verify a point of safety. This call for revision is motivated because these vehicles might have a buckle for safety belts (five seats) that do not fit well in their respective anchorages.
if so, there is the possibility that the coupling is incorrect and in the event of an impact the occupants would not be good subjects. In this way, the vehicle occupants could suffer injuries from consideration or even death. For this reason, since the signature has been quick to warn their clients to come as soon as possible by a department official to verify the seat belts from their cars.
As is understandable, this call for review is made without any cost for clients of the firm. The procedure that will be change the buckles for the other (in five places) and check the status of the new to ensure proper operation. The models affected by chassis number are the following:
Ford EcoSport (chassis): H8621740 the H8633153
Ford Ka+ (chassis): H8439635 the H8448712
By now this call to review only affects Argentina, but taking into account that both models are also sold in Europe and its components come from the same suppliers could be extended to other regions of the world. We will be watching out for Ford to make some call to review these models in our continent, on the contrary, if this issue is confined exclusively to the south american country.
