Minor recall for Ford in Brazil


Ford (F -2.3%) recalls 2013 Fusion vehicles in Brazil produced in a very narrow four-day range of April 19 to April 23, 2013.

A Brazilian regulator has an issue with the manner that the steering box was assembled.

    My Portuguese is rusty but there appears to be only 38 vehicles affected and the steering box is missing a clip. Not much of a recall.

    Imagine the activity here if this was a recall of 40 or so Teslas.

    There would be 1,000 posts. I have to un-check the 'track new comments' box on Tesla articles after 1 or 2 days. There are only 2 words to describe a TSLA stockholder; in sane.

     

    I read the Portuguese article again and it appears this missing clip allows the vehicle to go one way while the driver is turning the other. Could be a slight problem there.
