Defective Door Latches in Ford and Lincoln Vehicles

In September 2014 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched an investigation into consumer complaints of faulty door latches in 2011-2013 model year Ford Fiesta vehicles. Owners reported problems with the doors in these cars failing to latch when closed and/or remaining open or ajar. There have also been reports of injuries caused by a rebounding door striking a person after they attempted to close it. Since last fall NHTSA has received hundreds of additional complaints related to these problems. The agency announced yesterday that it will upgrade its investigation to an "Engineering Analysis" and expanded its scope to include 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Lincoln MKZ vehicles.
