Focus owners, check your cars: 42,988 are being recalled by Ford due to a potential fire risk.

Cars built between April 12, 2011 and September 29, 2015 may have a fault in their carbon canisters leaving them susceptible to being blocked with dust and cracking the fuel tank, resulting in a fire.

Ford will be contacting owners directly – but in the meantime you can check if your VIN is listed here – and arrange an inspection with your dealer.
