Safety agency investigates Ford Fiesta latches

The Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) U.S. safety regulators are investigating complaints that the doors won't latch properly on some Ford Fiesta subcompact cars.

The probe announced Monday by covers about 205,000 Fiestas from the 2011 through 2013 model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has received 61 complaints about the doors. Some said the latches wouldn't catch. A dozen said a door opened while the cars were being driven. The agency says one person was hurt when a door rebounded after an attempt to close it.

Investigators will analyze how often the problem happens to see if a recall is needed.

Ford says owners with door latch problems should contact their dealer.
