390,000 Ford and Lincoln Cars Recalled for Doors That Fly Open While Driving

Following an investigation into door latch failures in Ford Fiesta small cars and later expanded to include the Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, Ford is recalling about 390,000 of those cars to replace the door latches. Ford says the affected model years are the 2012-2014 Ford Fiesta, 2013-2014 Ford Fusion and 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ.

The expanded investigation found issues with the pawl spring tabs, which can break and allow the doors to open while driving. Needless to say, that’s a safety no-no and led to the recall.
