Ford has released a bulletin covering possible issues with floor pan welded joints on some 2016 C-Max and Focus.  


Anyone heard any further news on this, or, gotten recall Notice?


I checked with my dealer and they have nothing in their system

You can read Ford's press release here: https://media.ford.c...e-recall-i.html.  Note that a total of 17 vehicles are involved.


Hope this helps.



PS: Recall number is 17S03.  Google it.

"There are approximately 17 vehicles located in the United States and one in Canada. "

That is the smallest recall I've ever seen.  I have a '16 Focus Electric built there (Wayne).  Not affected of course.  '15 CMax not at all.


I met an engineer from the Wayne plant at the local auto show in town.  I would not want to be the dude who was responsible for a recall, thats for sure, either an engineer, assembly worker, tech who set up the welding robot, etc. who caused any recall.


Compare how small that one is to the latest Hyundai-Kia fiasco where they are recalling over a million vehicles who might need new engine blocks!!  They must have fired a bunch of people over that one.
