The vehicles affected by the recall are the 2014 Ford Fiesta, the 2013 and 2014 Ford Fusion and the 2013 to 2014 Lincoln MKZ.
The American car manufacturer states that the vehicles have a faulty pawl spring tab on the side door latch that may break. If this happens, the door will not close or may swing open while driving unexpectedly.
“This is certainly a potentially dangerous condition,” said Attorney James Johnson, a California personal injury and lemon law lawyer.
There are no known injuries or accidents resulting from this issue so far.

The recall includes 191,432 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, 10,996 in Canada and 8,191 in Mexico.
Ford reference number for this recall is 15S16.
The remedy for owners of these vehicles will be to have the dealership “replace all four side door latches with a more robust service door latch at no cost to the customer,” Ford said.
