Ford just can’t seem to shut the door on a latch issue that prevents doors from closing. They recently expanded a recall by 2.3 million vehicles, including the C-Max:
“Ford says the pawl spring tab can break inside the side door latch, causing failure of the door to close properly. Although the problem will typically prevent the door from latching in the first place, the automaker says a door that is able to close could unintentionally open while the vehicle is moving.”
There’s an appalling pawl shortage (which is much more fun to say than it is to experience). This means owners should receive a first notice about the recall, then a second notice when the parts are available.
