San Diego product liability attorneys, we understand that finding out your vehicle has been the subject of a
safety recall can be very alarming. However, this information can help
prevent a serious San Diego car accident.
With this in mind, we would like to share a recent recall issued by Ford
Motor Co. The company has announced that it is recalling 140,310 Focus
cars from model year 2012 in the United States to repair a potential problem
with the passenger-side windshield wiper motor.
A seal plug in the wiper motor electrical connector may be missing, allowing
water into the motor’s electrical connection, according to documents
filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That could
result in an inoperative wiper on the passenger side, reducing visibility
and increasing the risk of a crash.
Thankfully, no accidents or injuries had been reported related to the defect.
Owners will be notified the week of May 21, and the wiper motor connector
will be cleaned and sealed as needed, NHTSA said.
If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by a dangerous or
defective product, don’t hesitate to

at the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
