Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 2,147,323 model year 2011-2014 Ford Fiesta, 2013-2014 Ford Fusion, 2015 Ford Mustang, 2013-2015 Ford Escape and Ford C-Max, 2012-2015 Ford Focus, 2014-2016 Ford Transit Connect, 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ, and 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Latches/Locks/Linkages – Doors may open while driving

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V331000 reports that the recalled Ford vehicles were previously recalled and repaired under recalls 15V-246, 16V-643 or 17V-210, however the repair may not have been completed properly. A component within the door latches may break making the doors difficult to latch and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when, in fact, it is not.

According to the NHTSA, a door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of risk of serious injury and/or life changing or life threatening consequences.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the latch date codes to confirm if the repair was done correctly, and replace the side door latches if necessary, free of charge. Owners will also have the option to inspect their own vehicle’s door latches and enter the date codes into a Web site to determine if the latches are correct.

This recall is expected to begin July 20, 2020. Owners may contact Ford Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 20S30.
