Ford Recalls 2 Million Cars for Door Latches

September 12, 2016 at 11:18 am by Clifford Atiyeh

Ford is recalling 2,046,297 cars in the U.S. for faulty door latches, the fourth such recall since early 2015, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2012–2015 Focus, 2013–2015 C-Max and Escape, 2014–2016 Transit Connect, and the 2015 Mustang and Lincoln MKC are all affected. Pawl spring tabs in the interior door latch pulls can break, which means the door may not be secured even if it seems to be closed, the company said. The door may suddenly open while driving, rebound while closing, or may be difficult to close. Ford said it knows of one accident and three injuries related to the defect.
