Ford Makes Recalls for Child Lock Issues

Ford Motor Company has announced a recall that will affect more than 13,100 vehicles. The recall affects the 2013 model Ford Explorer, Taurus and Lincoln MKS. It has been determined that the child safety locks on the rear doors could automatically turn off, allowing the doors to be opened from the inside.

The recall affects those vehicles that were built in the Chicago Assembly Plant between November 29, 2012 and December 12, 2012.

Ford will test and replace the affected safety locks, and most of the recalled vehicles are located in North America.

No reports of injuries or accidents have been reported due to the malfunction.
