Auto manufacturer Ford Motor Company is recalling approximately 830,000 vehicles that may contain a dangerous safety defect. This recall is connected to faulty door latch mechanisms that could seriously jeopardize the safety of passengers in these vehicles.
According to Ford, the defective mechanisms in the recalled cars could cause the side-doors to open while driving. The defective door latch mechanisms greatly increase the risk of serious injuries to consumers.
So far, Ford is reporting that one accident and one injury have been caused in connection with this recall.
Several Ford and Lincoln model vehicles built between 2012 and 2015 are affected by the recall. Recalled vehicle models include:
- Ford C-Max, model years 2013-2015
- Ford Escape, model years 2013-2015
- Ford Focus, model years 2012-2015
- Lincoln MKC, model year 2015
- Ford Mustang, model year 2015
- Ford Transit Connect Vehicles, model years 2014-2016
Ford also announced that reports of defective door latch mechanisms have been higher in states with hotter climates. Therefore, this recall is focused primarily in Oklahoma, as well as several other warm-weather states.
