Body, Interior & Misc., July 2, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to mis-positioned carpet padding, the left side trim panel on the center console may be pushed outboard of the intended position. This would reduce the clearance relative to the pedal package. The reduced clearance may result in the driver's foot contacting the side of the brake pedal while transferring the foot from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal. This could increase stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will removed the carpet padding and replace the left-side console trim panel to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S34.

Engine, September 4, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On vehicles equipped with 1.6L engines, the cylinder head cup plug (freeze plug) may become dislodged, resulting in significant loss of engine coolant. As leaking engine coolant evaporates on the hot engine, the glycol may ignite, causing an engine compartment fire. An engine overheating condition could also occur. Dealers will seal the existing plug and add a secondary plug cover to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S39.
