The doors may open unexpectedly

Ford and Volvo are recalling 5,641,577 cars built with Kiekert USA C1A door latches.

A component within the door latches may break as a result of excessive temperatures within the door, 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.

A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury or the risk of a crash.

What to do

Ford and Volvo have recalls to notify their owners, and their dealers will replace all four door latches free of charge.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332 or Volvo customer service at (800) 458-1552.
