These vehicles have been called up due to a defective door latch but, according to Ford, Some of the merchants who claimed to have fixed this problem during previous calls had either not done the job properly or did not at all. Ford did not mention any specific agents. CNN Business called a car dealership, but has not yet been answered.
The problem is caused by the part of the door latch that can be broken, especially when exposed to high temperatures. This can make it difficult to close the door properly so that, while driving, the door can be opened unexpectedly.
Ford said in a statement that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries from doors that open, but the public safety database of the National Highway Safety Administration contains many complaints from doors that open suddenly while driving.
This recall comes after two previous calls in 2016 and 2017 covering the same problem. Each of the previous summons covered a different subset of the Ford and Lincoln cars from this last recall.
Owners will also have the option to check door latch date codes on their vehicle and send these codes online to check if the recall should be done.
Ford also announced the recall of more than 290,000 F-150 trucks with 3.5-liter V6 engines. On some of these trucks from 2014 to 2017, leaks in the main brake cylinder may weaken the front brakes. Ford said that the truck may issue an audible warning ring inside the cab, an alert appears in the dashboard message center and a red brake warning indicator appears.
The company said in a statement that at least seven low-speed accidents are alleged to be the result of this problem and two were known to Ford. The truck may sound an audible warning ring, an alert appears in the dashboard message center and a red brake warning indicator appears.
