Ford Motor Company is recalling 5,470 model year 2017 Ford Mustangs.
The return spring for the driver side interior door handle may come loose, allowing the driver's door to unlatch in a side impact crash.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 206, "Door Locks and Door Retention Components."
A door unlatching in a crash can increase the risk of injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driver-side interior door handle and repair the return spring, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 24, 2017.
Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for the recall is 17C04.
