I notice the Ecosport has been recalled in Australia. Has anyone had any contact from their UK dealers about this?
Almost 3000 Ford EcoSport SUVs have been recalled in Australia to correct a wiring defect that may cause the side airbags to not deploy correctly.
A total of 2804 EcoSport models produced between June 15, 2013 and August 26, 2014 are affected by the recall.
The official recall notice published on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) website explains the vehicles' curtain airbag, seatbelt pre-tensioner and side impact sensor circuits have been incorrectly orientated in the main wiring harness.
“If the side airbags do not deploy correctly there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants during a collision,” the notice reads.

Thanks. Does this mean those with one of the original orders (From Facebook?!) will be affected by this?
