I Was Locked In My Own Car! The Driver’s Side Door Would Not Unlock. I Tried The Inside Door Latch, The Outside Door Latch, Key Fob, And Even Tried To Unlock With The Key From The Outside. I Had Friends Trying To Help Me Get The Door Unlocked, With No Luck. I Had To Crawl Out The Passenger Side Of The Car. After Letting The Car Sit Of Over An Hour, The Door Would Finally Unlock. The Dealer Is Saying It Is The Actuator Motor Going Out, Cost For The Motor Alone Is $400. That Does Not Include The Labor To Install It. I Think It Is Ridiculous That An Electrical Motor Would Go Out With Only 38000 Miles On It. From What I Have Read, There Most Certainly Should Be A Recall. Hopefully It Will Not Require Someone Getting Trapped In A Car And Loosing Their Life For That To Happen. *tr

My 2010fordfocus Was Purchased On 3/10/2010. Within The First Week Of Ownership, The Door Locks Were Not Working Properly And The Vehicle Was Taken To The Dealer For Repair. The Problem Repeated Intermittently And The Vehicle Was Taken Back Numerous Time With The Same Complaint. Today, After Having Dealt With Working/non-working Locks On The Doors, Especially The Driver’s Door For More Than A Month, We Got The Same Response, “we Need To See The Vehicle When The Problem Is Occurring.” How Am I Supposed To Recreate The Problem To Suit Their Objection To Making A Repair? In Checking Further Into This I Found That This Situation Has Existed Since The 2000 fordfocus. When Is ford Going To Be Made To Fix This So That We Do Not End Up Pay Out Nearly $500 For A 4-door Lock Assembly Replacement? Enough Is Enough! In An Accident, Someone Is Not Going To Get Out Of The Vehicle And If There Is A Fire, Possibly None Of The Occupants Will Escape. ford Is Not Willing To Fix This. I Think It Is Time That This Safety Matter Was Address By An Agency That Can Make Them Deal With It Once And For All. A Ten Year Intermittent Failure Record Is Not A Good One. It Makes Me Wonder How Many People Have Died Or Been Injured Dealing With Locks That Do Not Operate As Expected? Crawling Over The Center Console To Exit From The Passenger’s Side Of The Vehicle Is Not Practical For Those Of Us Who Are Elderly And/or Disabled. I Am Both Elderly And Disabled. Now What? *tr
