Overview
Manufacturers, or importers, issue recalls for defects or faults which have the potential to cause injury. Generally, manufacturers will inform the original buyers if their vehicle is subject to a recall and of the steps required to remedy the defect or fault. Please note that the recalls below (if any) are for Australian-delivered vehicles only. Furthermore, the number of recalls should not be taken as an indication of a model's reliability or its safety more generally.

Recalls: Ford Mk.2 Kuga

2012-14 Ford Kuga 1.6T: cracked cylinder head and oil leak

In March 2017, a recall was issued for Ford Kuga vehicles that had 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engines and were manufactured from 16 December 2012 to 2 July 2014. In these vehicles, a lack of coolant circulation could cause localised overheating of the engine cylinder head; in turn, this could cause the cylinder head to crack and leak oil. Furthermore, the oil could ignite and cause a fire in the engine compartment. Until the recall works could be carried out, Ford advised owners to maintain the level of coolant in their vehicle; in the event of overheating or a coolant leak, the vehicle should be taken to a Ford dealer for diagnosis and repair (PRA 2017/16003). It is understood that recalled vehicles will undergo a software update and have the cylinder head checked for damage.
