The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating approximately 400,000 Ford Focus compact cars that may be unsafe to drive.
The investigation centers around complaints that the doors of these cars do not latch properly when they are closed. Some drivers have even complained that their doors have flown open when the cars were moving. So far, over 73 complaints from drivers have been registered with the NHTSA, and at least one person has been injured.
The cars in question are Ford Focus compact cars from the 2012 and 2013 model years.
The NHTSA investigation of these vehicles is still ongoing and no recall notice has been issued at this time. However, it is likely that the NHTSA will urge Ford to issue a recall at the conclusion of its investigation.
These defective door latch mechanisms are extremely unsafe and could lead to serious injuries.
