Ford is recalling 6,308 model-year 2012-2013 Focus Electric vehicles and model-year 2013 Focus ST vehicles due to a problem with the headlamps, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected Focus Electrics were manufactured from Sept. 15, 2011, through May 6, 2013, and the Focus ST models from Feb. 16, 2012, through May 7, 2013; check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb. These vehicles are equipped with high-intensity-discharge headlights that have a wiring issue that could cause the front side marker lamps to fail. "Without the proper illumination of the side marker lamps, the vehicle may be less visible in night time conditions, increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said in a statement.

Ford will notify owners beginning in mid-August, and dealers will modify the headlamp assembly wiring for free. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
