Avis Removing All Recalled Ford Focus Sedans From North American Rental Fleet

Avis Budget Group, Inc. (CAR) said Friday that it is immediately taking steps to remove from its rental fleet in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico about 10,000 model-year 2012 Ford Focus sedans following receipt of a safety recall notice from the manufacturer relating to a potential problem with windshield wiper motors.

After identifying the affected vehicles within the Avis Budget fleet by Vehicle Identification Numbers provided by the manufacturer, the company has placed those cars on "hard hold" in its reservations system, which prevents the vehicles from being rented. The company, which has a fleet of about 300,000 vehicles in North America, said it expects that removing the affected vehicles will not cause any disruption in customer service and that all existing reservations can be fulfilled as usual.
