It looks like the EcoSport has been recalled in the U.S for two relatively minor issues. Approximately 300 examples of the new EcoSport were fitted with European brake fluid reservoir caps instead of US ones. Additionally it looks like those same US bound EcoSports received euro spec owners manuals. The affected vehicles were built at Fords Chennai Assembly Plan between Oct 27, 2017 and March 6th, 2018.

I agree it could have been much worse. We should be happy that with how complex cars are these days that there aren't more problems. Some are too complex that people who were once DIY'ers are no longer.

I'd assume the euro spec owners manuals are actually a bit more detailed than the U.S. ones. Can't recall which model, but the Euro manual had a towing rate while the U.S. owner's manual just stated that the car wasn't meant for towing. I'd keep the Euro manual if I were them.
