Regional Recall For Another 830,000 Vehicles with Busted Pawl Springs

Ford’s pawl spring issues have had their doors blown wide open. Yes, I went there.

Ford says a recall of 830,000 vehicles in North America is needed to fix doors that may open while driving, but only if those vehicles are in certain areas.

This comes after the feds opened an investigation into 400,000 Focus cars experiencing similar problems to a door latch recall from last year.

The regional recall is limited to areas of “higher ambient temperatures and solar loading.” I guess “solar loading” is another term for we really don’t wanna do another national recall. This includes cars ever registered or sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Oregon and Washington.
