The inside door handles may not return to the proper stowed position when released, due to a faulty return spring in the handle. This can cause the corresponding door to unlatch, especially in a crash. Ford will inspect each inside door handle, and either repair or replace them free of charge to correct the problem.

The rear doors on these vehicles are equipped with child safety locks that prevent the doors from being opened from the inside when engaged. As the rear doors are opened and closed, one or both child safety locks may switch from engaged to disengaged without warning. With the child lock disengaged, a door could be opened accidentally, increasing the risk of injury to an unrestrained occupant. Dealers will test the safety locks and replace those not meeting the testing standard.
