2015 MKC's are subject to another recall. This time it is for the side door latches.

The recall includes 2013-15 Ford C-MAX and Escape, 2012-15 Ford Focus, 2015 Ford Mustang and Lincoln MKC, and 2014-16 Ford Transit Connect vehicles.

Thanks for reporting. Is it all 2015 MKCs? How do we know if ours needs to be repaired? Is there a place where we can check our VIN to see if we are affected? Is is both doors I assume? There's not much info in this article. Thanks again for sharing. I'm concerned for safety with a young son in the back....

I have to say, I don't know why you have let this vehicle torture you so.

Now you have the best reason to get rid of it; your child's safety. Get rid of it, move on, find a vehicle that will make you and your family happy. I cannot believe after all this time that had you invoked a lemon law suit that it would not have been decided by now. Get rid of the car, cut your losses and move to greener pastures, for your well being. God Speed.

Here we go again. Someone ELSE taking the thread off topic, imagine that.
But if I respond I will be blamed for taking the thread off topic and making every thread about my issue right?

To keep this thread on topic of safety issues ...

Not sure how many of you transport rear passengers but when my wife picked up her new mkc in 2014 the back passenger seat belt was defective and had to be replaced. Specifically it would lock/pin the passenger (my son) to his seat if he moved at all. It was replaced and all was well again for a few months before it began to do it again. It still "sticks" quite a bit to this day and requires him to rethread it back all the way so it unlocks. Never had to be done in her previous car nor my ford SUV.

Something you might want to check while you are checking your door latches....

They are saying one reported. What BS!!! there's people on Facebook talking about their doors opening with two kids in the car and it was in twice to be "repaired". Dealer never fixed it. Imagine another bad Lincoln dealer? In NJ too, and a different one than the four terrible ones we tried. It's no fluke. Lincoln deletes/hides the posts. Directs them to Lincoln client privately to squash anyone knowing what happens. The woman whose doors kept opening posted her messages with Lincoln concierge (which they promptly deleted of course-gotta hide the truth) which were an absolute joke, just like my wife's experience.

There are a helluva lot more than one report of this in order to prompt a recall AND they are replacing other years too at request? They know something is garbage. They only mention "one possible". How about all the reports and people that ALMOST fell out like the family on Facebook? They wouldn't issue a major recall for "one possible"

My wife will not drive the car unless my son isn't in it. And no one to fix it. Going to be a problem in a few weeks when school starts. Buy hey Lincoln doesn't care. First sell me a defective car, then deny it, then lie, hide everything, then put my son in jeopardy for 18 months and leave us with a defective car and no dealer to take it to. Set my wife up as a liar instead of take responsibility for your POS. PATHETIC!!!

Talk to Lincoln about that.. not "cutting losses" not taking a loss shouldn't have to...

Why don't you all set up a gofundme page and send us a check for the purchase price of the car..we will "cut our losses" in the form of not charging for all the time. mileage, and gas, defamation, and emotional distress un necessarily bestowed upon my wife the last 20 months for giving Lincoln and the dealership her business/money.

When you get to 49K let me know and Ill send you our address...
