Ford has issued details of a long-awaited ‘official fix’ following a recall of all Kuga PHEVs because of concerns about the batteries overheating and causing a fire.

The carmaker says it will replace the entire battery pack and associated electrical equipment of all models.

The repair process is due to start in late December with the aim of having all faulty vehicles repaired and back on the road by the end of March 2021.

The carmaker announced the safety recall in August and said it was temporarily suspending sales over the issue which is believed to affect up to 27,000 cars globally.

    Unusual would have expected a M-H-M fix of fire extinguisher from poundland.

    Great news for owners, not for environmental reasons
    Nearest dealer 7 hour boat ride away, transport the battery and gubbings from a far far away country, Then dispose of faulty batteries
