FORD issues recall for Fiesta ST
Ford South Africa announced an expanded safety recall to include the 1.6-litre engine in the Ford Fiesta ST. In the affected vehicles, a lack of coolant circulation could cause an engine to overheat, resulting in a crack in the cylinder head. This process can result in a pressurized oil leak and, if it comes into contact with a hot engine, there is a risk of fire. "The safety of our customers is our top priority, and the expansion of the safety recall is a precautionary measure on the Fiesta ST," said Jeff Nemeth, President and CEO of Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa.
