FILE A COMPLAINT
Why File A Complaint?
When NHTSA receives a quantity of complaints they will pressure the car company, Ford in my case, to issue a RECALL. If the car company issues a recall they will reimburse you for the cost of repairing your door(s) or offer to replace those bad door latches before they fail. This is an expensive repair! On my car $300 per door.
Any car make or model can on rare occasion suffer a broken door latch, but thousands of Ford Fiesta doors are suffering premature failures. One or more car door latches on the same Fiesta vehicle are breaking while the cars are still relatively new. Some multi latch breaks are almost simultaneous.
So many Ford Fiesta car door latches are breaking right now that the latch mechanisms needed to preform the repairs are on national backorder at the time of this post.
