 6,500 Vehicles Recalled by Ford Over Child Safety Lock Issues

About 6,500 new vehicles are being recalled by Ford Motor in north America to replace a rear door lock which may have a faulty child safety mechanism.

The related models are some 2013 Ford Focus, C-Max and Escape vehicles in the US and Canada because the child lock on the left rear door may have been installed incorrectly, Xinhua reported.

"The child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal turning force to activate the child lock, and the operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged," Ford told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

No crashes or injuries connected to the recall has been found, Ford said.

The recall covers 5,675 vehicles in the US as well as 859 in Canada.
