Over 1000 SUVs could be affected by oil leak issue.
Ford Australia has issued a recall for the Kuga crossover built between December 2014 and September 2015, over concerns an oil leak could develop.
The Blue Oval reports the condition could occur if the engine overheats, resulting in a loss of engine oil. Should this happen, oil on the road can create a safety hazard for other road users.
Affected Kuga units were produced from 13 December 2014 until 25 September 2015. The VIN list for the 1075 affected vehicles can be viewed here.
Owners will be contacted by Ford Australia, and will be advised to arrange an appointment with their local dealer to have their vehicle inspected and repaired.
