Attorneys Investigate Ford’s History of Door Latch Failures

A Ford Focus door latch lawsuit might be forthcoming as attorneys investigate failures of the door latches that allow the doors to open while driving. The legal investigation includes the 2012-2013 Ford Focus, the same model currently under a safety investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

This isn’t surprising.

If the current investigation determines that the Focus uses the same defective pawl springs that were recalled last year, and Ford knew about it, then that’s potentially a criminal offense. Or, at the very least, really crappy of them.
