Ford Recalls Hatchbacks Featured

Ford Motor Co. is recalling 64,038 model year 2013-17 Ford Focus hatchback vehicles manufactured Feb. 14, 2012 to Aug. 26, 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."
With only a single press needed, the driver may accidentally unlatch the hatchback, increasing the risk of injury to any unsecured passengers in the back.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the Body Control Module with updated software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Nov. 14.
Ford's number for this recall is 16C13.
