The Ford Sollers Holding company announced the recall of 3,968 Ford Focus, C-Max, Mondeo and Kuga cars, sold from 2011 to 2016. The reason for recalling vehicles equipped with a 6-speed gearbox is the possible formation of cracks in the clutch pressure plate. As the press service of Rosstandart informs, as a result there is a smell of coupling, speed of the car decreases, and its characteristics deteriorate. In rare cases of cracking on the clutch pressure plate, it can be heard noise (knocking or clapping) from the gearbox area. In the most extreme cases, fragments of the clutch or gearbox may come off and hit the components under the bonnet, by causing a risk of smoke or flame from the bonnet.

It was developed a new calibration on cars Ford Focus, C-Max, Mondeo and Kuga, in order to avoid permanent heating / cooling for cars equipped with automatic start / stop engine. The software with the additional function turns on the "wrench" indicator on the dashboard and reduces the engine's pulling force when a prolonged clutch slippage is detected. Also, the software provides a motion cycle strategy for fixing the "wrench" indicator and reducing the engine's traction in case of repeated clutch slip. For vehicles that do not have an automatic start / stop function, it was released another clutch kit. All repair works will be free of charge for the owners.
