Ford C-MAX Hybrid Recalled for Roof Issue

Ford has announced a recall for 33,021 C-Max Hybrid vehicles built between January 19, 2012 through June 26, 2013 for a roof defect.

According to the American automaker, the affected C-Max Hybrid vehicles have a roof component that does not meet the requirements for protection against head injuries. Only vehicles with the panoramic glass roof are affected by the recall. In order to correct the problem, Ford will have its dealers install plastic energy-absorbing material under the roof on both sides of the vehicle.

No accidents or injuries have been reported related to the issue, which was discovered during tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Ford.
