CAR DOOR LATCH URGENT NOTICE:
Why You Should File A Complaint
If the NHTSA receives a sufficient number of grievances they will investigate the problem. If they find the defect to be a safety related risk they are likely to request the car company, in my case it’s Ford, to issue a RECALL. When a car company issues a recall they must reimburse you for cost of repairs you may have forked out for this particular defect or offer to replace those bad door latches before they fail.
A reimbursement qualification might be that your repair might have had to be preformed by an authorized car dealer for your brand of car. Door latch mechanisms that will not latch are expensive to repair… around $300 for each door.
