Ford recalls Explorer, Taurus, MKS to fix locks

Posted: Updated:
Detroit, MI -

Ford is recalling just over 13,000 Explorer, Taurus and Lincoln MKS cars and SUVs because the child safety locks might not work on the rear doors.

 

The recall affects 2013 model cars sold mainly in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

 

Ford says the safety locks can be turned off when the doors are opened or closed. That could allow a door to be opened with the inside door handle and possibly hurt a child. The company says no injuries have been reported from the problem.

 

The recall covers cars and SUVs built from Nov. 29 to Dec. 12 of last year. Dealers will test the locks and replace door latches if needed at no cost to owners.
