DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Company is recalling 2.15 million vehicles over a potentially faulty door latch issue, the company announced in a news release Wednesday.

The cars may have be affected by a faulty spring in the door that keeps it from closing properly. “If the door latches after repeated attempts to shut it, there is potential for the door to unlatch while driving, increasing the risk of injury,” Ford stated.

The recall affects select Fiesta, C-Max, Focus, Mustang, Fusion, Escape, Transit Connect, Lincoln MKZ and MKC vehicles produced between 2011 and 2016. The vehicles may not have had all door latches replaced or repaired during recalls in 2015 and 2016.

Ford says the company isn’t aware of an accident or injury related to the condition.
