Vehicles Affected: Approximately 900 model-year 2015-16 Ford Focus Electric hatchbacks manufactured at the Michigan Assembly Plant between Aug. 20, 2015, and April 13, 2016, and the Saarlouis Assembly Plant in Germany between Feb. 28 and March 30, 2016

The Problem: The transmission differential pinion shaft could wear out, resulting in a shaft fracture that would cause the vehicle to lose motive power without warning while driving and transmission Park function without warning, increasing the risk of an injury or a crash. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will install a new transmission differential assembly equipped with a friction-reducing coating on both the pinion shaft and pinion gear bores for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 for more info.
