What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Ford Escape vehicles from model years 2013-2015, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
A component within the door latches of affected vehicles may break, making the doors difficult to latch and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when it is not, NHTSA said. A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant(s).
These vehicles were previously recalled and repaired under recalls 15V-246, 16V-643 or
17V-210; however, the repair may not have been completed properly.
Ford is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the latch date codes to confirm if the repair was done correctly, and replace the side door latches if necessary, free of charge.
This recall began in July 2020.
