Ford Recalls Focus for Child Lock Failure Danger
Report Receipt Date: MAR 07, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V085000 
Component(s): LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,675 

Manufacturer: Ford
SUMMARY:
Ford is recalling certain model year 2013 Focus and C-Max vehicles built from November 16, 2012, through November 21, 2012; and model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured from November 14, 2012, through November 21, 2012. The left rear door child lock was built incorrectly. As a result, the child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal force to activate the child lock.
CONSEQUENCE:
The operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged. However, the door may be opened from the inside, increasing the risk of injury to an unrestrained child.
