Unexplained crack in windshield. Crack appeared without any external object striking the windshield. Temperature was in the 70s and not freezing temperatures all year (living in fresno ca). Not sure when it happened, but i noticed it when the car was parked after driving about 7 miles.
This is a company car and i sometimes work from the back seat during my travel to clients as it's large and comfortable. I recently had occasion to meet with a client during inclement weather so we were in the rear of my car for about 30 minutes. After this time i could not release the door locks with the keyless remote, i am partially disabled and had to climb over the front seats to manually release the driver's door! I was trapped and my client was very upset. This is a major safety issue that is unacceptable. All doors - with the exception of the driver's door only open with a solenoid! I am terribly afraid that in the event of accident passengers would be trapped in the vehicle. I am asking the manufacturer to take this vehicle back after approximately one year of use. Note that the doors can be opened from outside when this occurs, just traps passengers inside the car. I can no longer drive this car!
Recall was identified in 08/10/2020 but yet to be fixed by ford motor company, recall #20s42
Door release button to unlock door failure. This is the second time in a one year period that a unlock button switch has failed two different doors. This is a safety issue since there is no manual or mechanical backup to open the door in a emergency, except for the drivers door.
