(CNN) -- Ford Motor Co is recalling 58,000 Ford Focus cars from 2012 and 2017 as well as some 2013-14 Focus ST models in North America.

The powertrain software in some of these cars may not work properly, which could deform the fuel tank.

The issue is connected to another recall from October, when nearly 1.5 million Focus cars were recalled for the same issue.

According to Ford, some cars were improperly serviced for that recall, which is why they are issuing another one.

Ford said those who are affected can take their cars to their dealers, who will reprogram the software and replace any parts that were affected.

Ford recently retired the regular Focus model and discontinued all but two models in North America.
