Ford recalls 74,000 Focus hatchbacks

Richmond, Va. (WRIC) — Ford is recalling about 74,000 Focus hatchbacks because the hatches can unlatch too easily while the cars are moving.

The recall includes cars with manual transmissions that are model years 2013 through 2017. The automaker says it has not received any reports of incidents or injuries as a result of this problem.

If you have one of these vehicles, take it to a Ford dealer for a free repair.
