Ford has recalled 16,444 units of the EcoSport in India to inspect and rectify a problem related to the rear twist beam bolt.
The recall covers vehicles manufactured between November 2013 and April 2014 at the company's Chennai plant.
According to Ford, in some of the affected vehicles, there is a possibility that the rear twist beam (RTB) bolt may not be tightened to specification, which may cause the pivot bolt to break.
This condition can potentially compromise vehicle handling and thereby increase the risk of an accident.
No accidents related to the concern have been reported.
Ford is writing to the owners of the affected vehicles, asking them to get their vehicles inspected at a local Ford dealer. If needed, the dealership will carry out necessary rework free of cost.
