  1. Hi, just took my 2016 SWB Wagon to the dealership on 2/6/17 to have this recall work done, and the rear sliding doors now require excessive force to open them from the outside. This is the recall for the faulty pawl spring tab on the rear sliding door's latches. The recall number is 16S30 "SIDE DOOR LATCH REPLACEMENT". I would estimate it takes at least 4 times the strength to pull the outside door handle than it previously took. My pre-teen daughters now cannot open the doors. Has anyone else had this recall work done yet? I'm wondering if this is an issue with Ford's repair parts, or if my dealership has screwed up. Thanks for the feedback!
  2. Hello, Just got my 2013, five months after I ordered it. Something I noticed with the opening of my sliding side doors, they are limited to less than full opening. As far as I know this is the only one I have seen that does this. Wondering if anybody else's doors are limited? - or if it is some "feature on new vehicles", to make it easier to close the sliding doors for back seat occupants. Yes it is a XLT wagon (non-premium) 2013 - #149156 To describe how they are limited - there is a bumper in the rear mid level track, positioned approximatley 5 inches from the rear of the track. As well there is a bumper on the lower track, and the spring keeper (the thing that holds the door open) is positioned foward a little more than others. I do have 255 degree doors, but see another 2013 with 255 doors that do not have this limit, but it is a van (not wagon) All pictures I have seen in brochures and web, do not have this bumper showing. So the question is - do other Wagon owners have these limits on the sliding doors? If you ask if this limit can be removed, I thought about it, but slim chance. The bumper on the lower track is attached to a welded on piece inside the track, so any modification will leave bare metal, and rust will overtake it. Seems to me the lower track is totally different than normal. I hope to post some pictures when I can. Thanks -
