    Summary

    Ford Motor Company (Ford) notified the agency on April 23, 2015, that they are recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured July 1, 2012, to May 31, 2013, and 2012-2014 Fiesta vehicles manufactured February 1, 2012, to May 31, 2013. On April 30, 2015, Ford expanded the recall to cover an additional 119,567 vehicles, including certain model year 2011 Ford Fiestas manufactured from November 11, 2009, to May 31, 2013 and certain model year 2013 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured from February 1, 2012, to June 30, 2012. A component within the door latches may break making the doors difficult to latch and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when, in fact, it is not.

    Consequence

    A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.

    What Owners Should Do

    Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace all four door latches with an improved part, free of charge. Interim notifications were mailed to owners on June 5, 2015. The recall began on December 18, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S16.

    Summary

    FORD IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011-2013 FIESTA VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 3, 2009 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 21, 2012. THE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD (FMVSS) NO. 208, "OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION." THE PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG WILL NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A SIDE IMPACT COLLISION WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY. ALTHOUGH THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO SUPPRESS THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG UNDER THIS SCENARIO, THAT INFORMATION IS NOT EXPLAINED IN THE OWNER'S GUIDE FOR THESE VEHICLES AS REQUIRED BY FMVSS NO.208.

    Consequence

    AN OCCUPANT IN THE RIGHT REAR SEATING POSITION WILL NOT HAVE COVERAGE FROM THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG IN A SIDE IMPACT COLLISION WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE RIGHT REAR OCCUPANT.

    What Owners Should Do

    FORD WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE VEHICLE'S SOFTWARE FREE OF CHARGE SO THAT IT NO LONGER SUPPRESSES THE PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY, AND CONSISTENT WITH THE DESCRIPTION IN THE OWNER'S GUIDE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN SHORTLY. OWNER'S MAY CONTACT FORD AT 1-866-436-7332.
