Ford is recalling about 28,200 model year 2017-19 Lincoln Continentals.
The autos may have an intermittently functioning door latch motor due to the buildup of silicon contamination, resulting in the door latch not fully engaging.
This condition could increase the potential for the door to open while the car is being driven, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition.
What to do
Dealers will remove and replace the door latch assemblies in all four doors of the recalled vehicles.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19S03.
