The National Highway Traffic Safety Association announced on its website that Ford is recalling 140,000 Focus models built between August 1, 2010 and October 18, 2011. The defect in question is a seal in the wiring harness connector to the passenger side wiper motor that may be missing.

Mistakes happen. Not really a seriously recall problem. At least the accelerator doesn't stick!
