Most Indian car and two wheeler makers avoid the term recall and use terms such as "performance improvement measures", etc, which is plain ridiculous. Ford, being a global car maker of certain repute, takes a more mature approach when it comes to recalling cars. Hence, the appreciation for the transparency and quick action.

Cheers,

I think XUV500 termed it as a recall

Regarding the reason behind the ecosport recalls,does anyone think that the GCU would short circuit incase of moisture entry causing a fire?
GCU in modern DI diesel is not a starting aid like it used to be on the early IDI diesels where we heat the engine with a glow plug before cranking
In modern DI diesels glow plugs are used to reduce cold start emissions.
Do I sense a "Tavera" here?

As per what I recollect, having or not having the OBD-II port is not a choice. It's a regulation to comply with.
Isn't it?
Only for the BS4 legislated cities it is mandatory.But manufacturers keep the port on their BSIII variants anyway,which may or may not support reading using an off the shelf OBD scan tool.But definitely any ECU controlled engine would have a port or method to read the errors or dtc at authorised workshops.

Doesn't matter what and how, the car makers should offer same brands at comparable price in India. Recalling is a good thing, but it should not happen.
totally agree with you sumannandy. But the point regarding having to pay almost double may partly be due to the tax structure.
Does anyone have an estimate regarding the tax structure on cars in US v/s India and can enlighten us?

Default Re: Ford EcoSport Diesel : Recall

After 45,000 kms of niggle-free driving that included a trip to Ladakh and several highway runs, I have received the latest recall notice by Ford citing faulty clips on fuel and brake lines.

Anyone else here who has got this notice? How severe is the issue?

Regards,
Saurabh
