The North American Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall notice said a door which did not latch correctly would increase the risk of injury to road users. NHTSA’s notice says: “Ford Motor Company has determined that some vehicles claimed by dealers as repaired under Safety Recalls 15S16 & 16S30 did not receive the claimed repairs, or the repair may not have been completed properly. “If a vehicle did not receive the claimed repairs, the door latches have a pawl spring tab that may break. If the customer is able to latch the door after repeated attempts to shut the door, there is potential the door may unlatch while driving, increasing the risk of injury.”DON’T MISSFord issue urgent safety recall on 68,000 models Volvo issue car recall for brake errors Mercedes fails to recall cars with airbag glitch
READ MORE Ford has recalled over 250,000 popular road cars Ford has revealed dealers will be informed of the recall during the third quarter of 2020 when parts become available. However, customers who experience side door problems before a dealer bulletin is available should contact Ford’s Special Service Support Centre. Owners will be notified of the recall through first class post after repair instructions and parts information have been sent to dealers. Ford has also revealed it is offering a refund for owner paid repairs which are covered by the recall. Owners who are worried they may be affected by the safety glitch have been urged to inspect the latches on their vehicle themselves.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
