Ford Focus EV recalled, again, this time with ambulances

Following an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Ford says it will recall about 2,500 of its 2012-14 Focus Electric because of a power-loss problem.

Ford told the safety agency that a software issue in the powertrain control module could cause a loss of power to the front wheels. However, the automaker said the steering and brakes would work normally and that it was not aware of any accidents related to the defect.

Ford told N.H.T.S.A. that by the middle of August it had received 16 reports from Focus Electric owners who had experienced the problem. The company’s critical review group was given the task of reviewing the problem at that time. Ford decided on Sept. 5 to refer the issue to its customer satisfaction forum because of a “low occurrence rate.”

But the next day, the agency said it would investigate 12 consumer complaints that it had received about the power loss. Those complaints included one owner being stranded on a highway in what she thought was a hazardous location.
