Ford has detected a problem in the weld integrity of the front lower control arm of the SUV. The weld strength on some of these vehicles may be below Ford specifications, which in rare cases, can potentially affect steering control. The company is also writing to owners of 1,018 EcoSport vehicles, made between November 2017 and December 2017, to inspect their cars for driver and front passenger seat recliner locks. The passenger seat recliner locks include the latest facelift versions.
