Recall Alert: 2012 Ford Focus

2012 ford focus
Ford is recalling more than 140,000 Focus sedans and hatchbacks due to problems with the windshield wiper motor, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In these cars, a seal in the passenger-side wiper motor's wiring harness connector may be missing. This could lead to water or other contaminates accumulating in the connector, rendering the wiper inoperable. Reduced visibility could result, increasing the risk of a crash.

A total of 140,310 vehicles manufactured between Aug. 1, 2010, and Oct. 18, 2011, are affected. You can find your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

Ford will notify owners starting May 21, and dealers will clean and seal the passenger-side wiper motor connecter free of charge. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
