20,752 units of Ford Ecosport recalled

Ford India has been receiving several complaints from Ecosport customers for a while now, and this has prompted them to look at the issue more closely. It has been found that the fuel and vapour line of the best-selling compact SUV is prone to corrosion. On the sidelines, is another concern which will be taken care of and that is pertaining to the reorientation of the wiring harness for the proper deployment of side airbags.
