Ford recalls the Focus, C-Max and Escape

Filed under:  Brand Related | Recalls

Ford is recalling certain model year 2013 Focus and C-Max vehicles built from November 16, 2012, through November 21, 2012; and model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured from November 14, 2012, through November 21, 2012.

The left rear door child lock was built incorrectly. As a result, the child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal force to activate the child lock.

Consequence.
The operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged. However, the door may be opened from the inside, increasing the risk of injury to an unrestrained child.

Remedy.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the affected rear door latches, and replace them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 25, 2013. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V085000
Component(s): child lock latch
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,675
Ford recall campaign number: 13S02
