The next generation Ford Fiesta will have an engine made by a Canadian company called Daimler, which is now under investigation by US regulators for causing the death of a man who suffered a massive heart attack.
Daimler said it has a licence to manufacture engines in the US, and is a partner of General Motors.
In a statement to the Irish Times, the automaker said it had been notified by regulators about the death.
“Our hearts go out to the family of the man who died, and we are cooperating with authorities in this matter,” a spokesperson said.
The company said the Daimlers’ engines were made in Canada, and its operations were based in Canada.
“As part of its ongoing investigation, the US Department of Justice has launched an investigation into the safety of Dams engines.””
The investigation has not been completed.”

The investigation has not been completed.
Dams said it is investigating the deaths.
“We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and we have no further comment at this time,” a spokeswoman said.
The company’s US operations are based in Detroit, Michigan, and Detroit is the largest city in the state of Michigan.
Ford has been embroiled in a number of scandals, including the firing of US chief engineer Robert Lutz, who was accused of misleading shareholders.
Daimling has been under investigation since late 2014, when the German company admitted it had sold vehicles to Chinese suppliers.
Last month, it admitted selling vehicles to a Chinese company without adequate checks.
But Ford has repeatedly denied that the Chinese supplier was involved in the deaths of the victims.
Ford has now said it will be offering compensation for the family and will also pay for the medical bills of those killed.
“The family of these motorcyclists will receive full compensation for their loss and the cost of their funerals and burial arrangements,” the company said in the statement.
“The families of all the other motorcyclers and drivers involved in this accident will also receive full and appropriate compensation.”
