Ford Motor Company is recalling 2.1 million model year 2011-2014 Fiestas, model year 2013-2014 Fusions, model year 2015 Mustangs, model year 2013-2015 Escapes & C-Maxs, model year 2012-2015 Focus vehicles, model year 2014-2016 Transit Connects, model year 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZs, and model year 2015 MKs.
These vehicles were previously recalled and repaired under in 2015, 2016 and 2017. However the repair may not have been completed properly.
A component within the door latches may break 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 to an occupant.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the latch date codes to confirm if the repair was done correctly, and replace the side door latches if necessary free of charge.
Owners will also have the option to inspect their own vehicle's door latches and enter the date codes into a website to determine if the latches are correct.
This recall is expected to begin July 20, 2020.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 20S30.
