Ford recalls 830,000 vehicles because doors could open while driving

US carmaker Ford has recalled approximately 830,000 vehicles in the US and Mexico due to a fastening defect with their doors, the company said Thursday.

The company knows of at least one accident and one injury resulting from the problem.

Models affected include the Ford C-Max and Ford Escape from 2013-2015 as well as Ford Focus models from the years 2012-2015. The recall also includes 2015 Ford Mustangs, and the Lincoln MKC Sports Utility Vehicle and Ford Transit Connect Vans from years 2014-2016.
