Ford is having a problem keeping its vehicle's doors closed, prompting another massive recall.
If they keep it up, they might have trouble keeping their doors open too. Ford says about 830,000 vehicles in North America need fixes to stop the doors from popping open while driving. This isn't the automaker's first time dealing with this problem. In 2015 they recalled nearly 550,000 vehicles for a similar issue.

Ford is also recalling 49,000 vehicles because the seat backs might have faulty welds where the recliner mechanism attaches to the seat frame.
The concern here is the seats won't hold in a crash. The recall affects the 2013-14 Ford Escape, [C-Max], and [Fusion]. The issue also affects the Lincoln MKZ.
There is no scheduled date for the recall to begin, but owners should be on the lookout for a notification soon from Ford.keep reading article "Bad Seat Welds for the Escape, C-Max, and Fusion"
