In an expansion of an earlier safety recall, Ford Motor Co. is calling back an additional 210,619 vehicles in North America to replace door latches, the company said.

The recall expansion includes 2014 Ford Fiesta, 2013-14 Ford Fusion and 2013-14 Lincoln MKZ vehicles.

In these vehicles, Ford said, the pawl spring tab in the side door latch could break and prevent the door from closing properly. A door that opens while driving increases the risk of injury.

Of the 210,619 vehicles involved, 191,432 are in the U.S. and federalized territories, 10,996 are in Canada, and 8,191 are in Mexico. The Ford reference number for this recall is 15S16.

Dealers will replace all four side door latches with more robust service door latches at no cost to the customer.
