Ford recalls 9,900 vehicles across two campaigns

Includes The Focus ST, Escape, Explorer, Taurus, And More

Ford is recalling a total of 9,885 vehicles in two campaigns.

The Basics: In one recall, Ford will recall 9,017 examples of the 2013 Escape with build dates from January 11, 2012, to April 1, 2013, and the 2013-2014 Focus ST produced between May 3, 2012, and October 14, 2013.

The Problem: Splices in the engine wiring harness might not have enough compression, and this can cause the manifold absolute pressure sensor to send incorrect signals to the powertrain control module. This issue could cause the engine to stall.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If You Own One: The repair campaign will begin on January 4, 2016.

More Information: Ford recalled the 2013 Escape and Focus ST in August 2014 for the same problem, and this is an expansion of that campaign, according to company spokesperson John Cangany to Autoblog.

The Basics: In the smaller of the two campaigns, Ford will recall 868 examples of the 2013 Explorer, Explorer Police Utility, Taurus, Taurus Police Interceptor, Flex, Lincoln MKS, and MKT.

The Problem: The fuel delivery module can crack, which would cause a fuel leak.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.

If You Own One: Owners should receive notice soon because NHTSA's report says the recall begins in December.

More Information: According to Cangany, this recall is an expansion of a campaign from 2013 for these vehicles.

2015 Ford Focus ST With Ford Performance Upgrades First Test Motortrend Review

Money Can Fix Your (Focus ST) Problems

The Ford Focus ST has three problems: torque steer, exhaust note, and power. Now, the Focus ST is a heck of a vehicle, but itís missing a little extra something. Thatís where Mountune comes in. Wait, who? You might be wondering who Mountune is, but if youíre a Focus performance aficionado, youíre already familiar with their work.

The short version is that Mountune makes the magic happen for the big names racing four-cylinder Fords. The company started in the 1980s prepping Cosworth engines for motorsports and in later years branched out to offer a line of parts that donít void the Ford factory warranty. The Ford-approved modifications are also smog-legal in all 50 states. This really matters if you reside in one of the more tuning-averse states.

Mountuneís work on the 2015 Ford Focus ST yielded a full complement of modifications that fall roughly into two categories: performance enhancements and appearance enhancements. The performance mods are really the problem solvers of the bunch; the appearance mods solve a different set of problems in a more subjective field. The whole shebang goes for $5,102, though it must be installed by the dealer (Ford or Lincoln), Mountune USA, or an ASE-certified tech to comply with your new vehicle warranty.

Under the Hood

The torque steer and power problems are both solved under the hood, where $1,900 gets you the Mountune MP275 engine kit. That increases power by 18 hp and 26 lb-ft of torque to 270 hp and 296 lb-ft. On the horse-per-dollar scale, the Mountune kit is pretty modest, but weíre told that the upgraded intercooler included with the kit is integral not only to making that power but also to keep it, because heat soak becomes a problem when increasing boost with just the stock intercooler. Itís been a few months since Iíve ripped around in a stock ST, but the tuner gave me a good shove back in my seat when I stomped on it. Far healthier than MTís long-term Volkswagen Golf GTI.

Ford Focus Wins Hottest Sport-Compact of 2015 SEMA

Nov-04-2015 7:55 AM ET

DEARBORN, Mich., — Ford Mustang, Ford Focus and Ford F-Series are officially Hottest Car, Hottest Sport-Compact and Hottest Truck of this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association show. The SEMA award recognizes the most popular vehicles the organization’s members feature in their displays at the weeklong event. 2015 marks the first time any OEM has won three of the coveted awards.

Before this year’s show opened, SEMA officials walked the floor of the giant aftermarket expo and counted the number of new cars and trucks exhibited. More Mustang, Focus and F-Series vehicles are on display than any other car or truck.

“Winning SEMA’s hottest vehicle awards for Mustang, Focus and F-Series is a great affirmation of the popularity of Ford vehicles with this trendsetting part of the market,” said Dave Pericak, director, Ford Performance, who accepted all of the honors at the annual awards breakfast. “We’re proud the aftermarket has embraced these three vehicles with as much enthusiasm as our customers invest to personalize their Mustang, Focus and F-Series.”

Ford Focus won Hottest Sport-Compact of SEMA for the first time as the car’s popularity with the aftermarket grows. Mustang and F-Series each have multiple wins — a testament to the popularity and appeal of Ford vehicles.

Ford takes center stage once again at SEMA this year as the largest OEM presence with 28 unique SEMA builder cars featured on the Ford stand alone, and nearly 50 vehicles on display between the stand and the wildly popular Ford Out Front demo track. Custom builds include six Ford Focus and Fiesta ST cars, seven Ford SUV models from Edge Sport and Explorer Sport, eight Ford Mustangs and seven Ford F-150 concepts.
