    • Date Announced: SEPTEMBER 28, 2016
    • Vehicles Affected: 64,038

    Summary: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2017 Ford Focus hatchback vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to August 26, 2016 and equipped with a manual transmission. The hatchback of the affected vehicles may be unlatched with a single press of the interior latch release button. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 206, "Door Locks and Door Retention Components."

    Consequence: With only a single press needed, the driver may accidently unlatch the hatchback, increasing the risk of injury to any unsecured passengers in the back.

    Actions: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the Body Control Module with updated software, free of charge. Interim letters informing owners that remedy parts not yet available were issued on November 16, 2016. Remedy parts are expected to be available in January 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C13.

    Actions: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the door latches with an improved part, free of charge. Due to a limited parts supply, each owner was mailed an interim notification beginning on October 3, 2016 and will receive a second notice when parts are available in the second quarter of 2017.
