If you would have read the posted link:

Rather than issue a standard recall where Ford would replace the defective part or component, for the first time Ford will try and avoid replacing the known defective part at all. Ford's new recall scheme mandates that they will only replace the known defective part after it actually fails. Ford has specifically instructed their dealers to "Fix only if broken" the known defective Focus fuel pump after it fails.

ZX3_Chick: There "may" be a problem. Doesnt mean there is one. Sounds more like Ford needs to start cracking the whip on the Mexicans building these damn things to make them more consistant.

Hmm... the info doesn't say whether this includes SVT cars or not. I have never had any indication that there is a fuel pump problem, but I'm gonna go check for irregular tire wear right now.

Seriously! Grr... Snow makes it a litttle bothersome to be breaking out the tread depth guage every week.
