The recall was in response to the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) investigation EA15-002 which concluded the latch pawl spring tab can break, potentially causing the door to open while driving. On March 27, 2017, Ford Motor Company issued safety recall 17V-210 expanding the population from Recall 15V-246 of approximately 191,432 model year (MY) 2014 Fiesta, MY 2013-2014 Fusion, MY 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured between June 1, 2013 and October 31, 2013. ODI has received 109 complaints alleging incidents of doors opening while driving in the subject vehicles. Many of the complaints occur on vehicles that have been previously under Recall 15V-246 and 17V-210. In addition, ODI has received multiple complaints on vehicles that fall outside the recall population. ODI has received 2 complaints alleging minor injuries due to the door opening while driving (ODI# 11268297, 11015973) and 1 complaint alleging debris exiting the vehicle on the freeway (ODI# 11240352). A recall query has been opened to assess the scope and remedy for Recall 15V-246 and 17V-210.
