Glad this came through finally. I have had my purge valve replaced, but dealer did not replace the tank, even though they acknowledged the deformity in the tank walls. Wanted to charge me $1,500 for that. Wonder if I can get a refund on the valve fix and get the tank resolved now? Hmmm....

I ask myself that same question every time someone drives with me & asks “What the heck is wrong with your car”? As it shudders on acceleration. It’s embarrassing for sure.

I hope they will refund the valve because I replaced it myself... meh.

DCT will have to be redesigned, new parts, a lot of work, etc... maybe a recall in 10 years lol

Stupid question, but can you see the gas tank under the car without removing anything to look at it? It's been raining this week and I don't want to lay on the ground unless I have to, ha ha. I just had the evap purge valve problem and canister replaced and they never even mentioned looking at the gas tank for deformation so I am wondering if there is any. We did have issues with the gas tank not seeming to fill up as much as it used to, even though the indicator said full...

Yeah, I replaced my valve myself as well, except I didn't ask for a refund once they did the recall... I think if you've got the receipt from the part it's definitely worth an ask. I didn't have the heart to ask since they gave me the recall early...

So what’s the deal with all of the brand new 2018 Focus models currently at the dealerships? Is Ford continuing to just sell them knowingly that there’s a full recall in effect? Why would anyone want to buy a brand new car knowing that there’s a potential problem & that they’ll have to turn around within a month or so & drop it off for repairs?

It takes a while to stack up repair parts for those numbers. and what they do, drag feet to make it look as much as it can to the government that they cannot afford the recall. The spreading out is what allows the corporation to accept the losses.

Like Nissan with the Takata airbag hit, they are repairing cars with known bad bags again but since they are newer they can do it and then your car has to again come back at a later date for the more permanent fix. Likely many of those cars will never come back but by then the company can put much of it off on the consumer.

Speaking of P0420, it always seems to come back with a new full tank of gas.

Just checked my VIN, and it's in the recall. I've never had a CEL or any issue related to this (at 100K+ miles), but should I just replace the valve?

According to FordPartsGiant, my VIN needs BV6Z-9D289-R, "Fuel Vapor Separator." That's what I need, correct?
