Ford issues two safety recalls for interior door handle issue and for safety belt fastener torque issue

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 205,000 2010-2013 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS and Ford Police Interceptor sedans due to an issue with the spring that controls the interior door handles. If the spring is unseated, the door may become unlatched in a side-impact
crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Affected vehicles include certain 2010-2013 Ford Taurus vehicles built December 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010 and February 1, 2011 to November 30, 2012 at Chicago Assembly Plant; certain 2010-2013 Lincoln MKS vehicles built June 2, 2011 to October 31, 2011 at Chicago Assembly Plant; and certain 2010-2013 Ford Police Interceptor sedans built December 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010 and February 1, 2011 to November 30, 2012 at Chicago Assembly Plant.

Ford is aware of 204,945 vehicles in North America, including 194,889 in the United States and federalized territories, 9,948 in Canada and 108 in Mexico.

Another safety recall is for approximately 16,100 2014 Ford Transit Connect vehicles for a potential issue with safety belt fasteners that may not have been tightened properly. Safety belt fasteners that do not meet installation torque specifications may loosen over time, which may cause them not to function as intended, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Affected vehicles include certain 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans built November 6, 2013 to September 20, 2014 at Valencia Assembly Plant. All 16,091 vehicles are located in the United States.
