The inspection will be conducted on two separate lots of the EcoSport - one manufactured between May and June 2017 and the other between November and December 2017
Ford India has released a notification to inspect a total of 5,397 units of the EcoSport. Of these, 4,379 units manufactured between May and June 2017 will be inspected for improper welding of the front lower control arm, which, according to the carmaker, could affect steering control.
Recliner locks of the driver and front passenger seat of the remaining 1,018 EcoSport models produced between November and December 2017 will also be inspected by the carmaker. Any manufacturing defect, if found, should be sorted by Ford free of cost, as is the case with such inspections.

Ford India is voluntarily inspecting 4,379 EcoSport vehicles, made at the company’s Chennai plant between May 2017 and June 2017, for weld integrity of the front lower control arm. The weld strength on some of these vehicles may be below Ford specifications, which in rare cases, can potentially affect steering control.
The company is also writing to owners of 1,018 EcoSport vehicles, made between November 2017 and December 2017, to inspect their cars for driver and front passenger seat recliner locks.
The voluntary inspections are in line with the company’s commitment to deliver world-class quality vehicles to its customers.
