FordAfter some reports of the faults seen in their child locks, the North American based automaker Ford has announced recalling its various vehicles.

It has been reported that more than 6,500 vehicles, like the Ford Focus, Ford C-Max and Ford Escape will be affected by this recall across the U.S.

"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 ", said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

It also said that the problem has to be healed as any ignorance may lead to an injury, and even worse, during the event of a crash.

Ford's Wayne, MI and Louisville, KY plants have been affected by this recall. All the vehicles that were developed in November 16 and 21, 2012 have been called for recheck. From these cars, almost 860 units have already been sold in Canada.

All those owners who have been affected by the recall will be spoken to by the company later. Presently, they will provide services to all those people who have faced problems because of the fault. Their child locks would be replaced accordingly if the same have not been installed properly.
