Martin,

Wat is op met die goed wat brand?
Ons ken mense wat Kuga's ry en wil nie hê hulle moet skade ly nie.
Gedink dis 'n rook en kook... Blykbaar is daar 'n vuurtjie waar 'n rokie trek... :shock2:

Het so bietjie navorsing gedoen, na n vriend hul Kuga moes terugvat vir die recall.

2012 tot 2014 1,6 petrol modelle het gebrand. Ons praat van omtrent 23 karre uit baie baie duisende wat verkoop is. Die getal wissel wild tussen die verskillende media ....

'n Radiator pyp het te naby die catalytic converter verby geloop .... volgens die Ford recall dokument is daar alchol in die antifreeze .... pyp word warm, begin lek, fyn lek wat spuit naby die cat, met n alkol inhoud .... Die brande was VOOR.

Die nuwer modelle is nou 1,5 eco-boost en het n ander uitleg en geen brand issues nie.


Nou het iemand se Kuga uitgebrand, van AGTER ..... nou is dit skielik n paniek storie ..... DIE brand het geen obvious verbintenis met die recall issue nie ..... MAAR, die ou is doodgebrand in sy kar !!

so bitjie meer inligting :
http://www.timeslive.co.za/consumerl...possible-cause
Finally‚ Ford SA has confirmed that the risk of its Kuga SUV catching fire is confined to a particular model - the 1.6-litre EcoBoost - “possibly” as a result of engine overheating.

“Dealers will check the coolant concentration level and for any leaks or damage to the cooling system‚ plus conduct cooling system pressure tests‚” Ford SA spokesman Rella Bernardes told TimesLive on Thursday.
The 1.6-litre engine was replaced by a 1.5-litre engine in the Kuga two years ago: neither the 1.5-litre nor the 2.0-litre models are affected by what Ford is calling a “dealer maintenance check”.
Until now‚ Ford SA has failed to be drawn on the possible cause of the fires which have broken out in an alarming number of Kugas - 38 at last count‚ according to the siblings of Reshall Jimmy‚ who lost his life in a Kuga inferno while holidaying at Wilderness a year ago.
Earlier this week the National Consumer Commission (NCC) said Ford would instruct its dealerships nationwide to conduct “safety inspections” on all Kugas sold in the country as a “precautionary measure instituted at the behest of the NCC”.

That announcement had many owners of 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre Kugas making unnecessary trips to dealerships.
On Thursday‚ Ford announced: “While our investigations into the incidents are not complete at this time‚ we have found that the fires may be a result of engine overheating.”
Yet the company continues to maintain that the fire in Jimmy’s Kuga on December 4 last year started at the back of the vehicle‚ not in the engine compartment.
“That is clearly evidenced by the level of fire damage to the rear and the relative lack of damage to the front of the Kuga‚” Ford SA said yesterday.
“We have requested access to the police report and other investigative materials to better understand all the facts concerning the case.”
