The recall has stemmed due to an issue detected in suspension and steering; check online if you need to take your car to the nearest Ford dealership.
Ford India has issued a recall for two of its most popular products, the Ford Figo hatchback and the recently re-badged Ford Classic, which was earlier known as Ford Fiesta Classic over some issues detected in the Power Steering Hose (PAS) and in the Rear Twist Beam (RTB) of both the models.
Ford India is recalling identified batches of Figo and the Classic that were built between September 2010 and February 2011. As a precautionary measure, Ford is also inspecting all the units of both the models built between January 2008 and December 2010. Ford India will replace the PAS hose and and fix the suspension issue for all the Figo's and the Classic's that stay affected by the said recall, free of cost of course.
Ford Figo and Classic owners can even check online if their respective vehicles have been affected by the recall, simply by logging at Ford India's Field Service Action page, where you will be asked to enter the 17 character VIN or Vehicle Identification Number. Hit submit and the system will immediately notify if you need to take your Figo or the Classic to the nearest company dealership.
Here is what Ford India had to say via their official Facebook page:
We have initiated a voluntary pre-emptive Field Service Action to inspect certain batches of Ford Figo and Ford Classic models for potential issues related to the Rear Twist Beam (RTB) and the Power Steering Hose (PAS).

- We are inspecting the Rear Twist Beam for all Ford Figo and Ford Classic vehicles manufactured between January 2008 and December 2010
- All Ford Figo and Ford Classic petrol-engined vehicles manufactured from September 2010 till February 2011 will have the PAS Hose replaced as a precautionary measure and to ensure the long term durability of the vehicle.
