Recall Alert : 2012-2015 Ford door latches

RECALL Subject : Doors may Unexpectedly Open , 1 INVESTIGATION(S)

Report Receipt Date: SEP 06, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V643000
Component(s): LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,046,297

Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company

SUMMARY:

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 Ford Focus, 2013-2015 Ford Escape and Ford C-MAX, 2015 Lincoln MKC and Ford Mustang, and 2014-2016 Ford Transit Connect vehicles. A component within the door latches may break, preventing the doors from latching and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when, in fact, it is not.
CONSEQUENCE:
A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.
REMEDY:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the door latches with an improved part, free of charge. Due to a limited parts supply, each owner will be sent an interim notification beginning October 3, 2016 and will receive a second notice when parts are available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S30.
