Ford Issues Nationwide Recall After Reports Of Doors Randomly Opening With These Vehicles!
Ford has issued a recall for about 830,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Mexico due to faulty side door latches that are reportedly breaking and its doors opening while the vehicles are in motion.
The recall covers certain 2013 to 2015 Ford Escape SUVs and C-Max cars, and 2012 to 2015 Focus cars. Some 2014 to 2016 Ford Transit Connect vans, and Ford Mustang sports cars and Lincoln MKC SUVs from 2015 have also reported the same problems.
Ford says that the problem is with a faulty tab inside the latch that can break, stopping the door from latching. The rate of problems have been attributed to states with higher temperatures, so the recall is mainly focused on 16 states mainly in the south and west.
Dealers will replace all latches in the recall states. In other states, they will replace the latches if they break.
