Ford Recalls 140,000 Cars in the U.S.

As 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 contact a San Diego product liability attorney at the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
