Ford recalls 140K Focus cars for wiper issue

DETROIT

Federal Safety regulators say water can get inside and cause the wiper to stop working, increasing the risk of a crash. This may be caused by a missing seal in the wiper motor wiring.

/*Ford*/ says there haven't been any crashes or injuries from the problem.

The cars involved in the /*recall*/ were built from Aug. 1, 2010 through Oct. 18, 2011. The company expects to begin the free repairs in late May.

Owners with questions can call Ford at (866) 436-7332.
