Ford Under Fire As Ford Kuga Models Catch Alight

Compare Guru
2017-01-10
A distressing amount of Ford Kuga models have set alight in the past 12 months alone, due to electrical faults, resulting in one death.
A woman's post made the news when she lamented at how she was struggling to sell her Ford Kuga. She had initially tried to trade it in. But, after being offered practically nothing, had explored other methods of selling her vehicle. Natalie Barass posted her 2013 Ford Kuga Ambient for sale on a Durban online buy-and-sell group and was instantly hit with a hurricane of harsh words and accusations.
“Huh uh no thank you....they go kaboom!” said one person. Another said: “Ford said the engines are overheating. Now, back to the owner of this post, why are you selling us a tombstone?”

Reason Behind The Explosions

A Ford Kuga vehicle claimed a life, last year December 2015, when 33-year-old Reshall Jimmy burnt to death in his 2014 Ford Kuga SUV. At the time, police told Jimmy’s family to ask Ford to send a forensic investigator to inspect the burnt wreckage.

It was concluded by police forensic investigators, and Ford experts, that the fire was caused by an electrical fault.
Ford spokesman Minesh Bhagaloo said: “We are investigating reports of engine fires in Kugas equipped with the 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine in South Africa. While our investigations are not complete, we have found the fires may be a result of engine overheating.”
He said affected customers should contact their Ford dealer to request a further check of the maintenance items, especially the coolant system condition and integrity. Affected customers can also contact Ford Customer Service directly at 0860 011 022.
