- Ford announced on Wednesday it's recalling 220,000 cars for safety reasons.
But one local dealer Newswatch 12 spoke with says car owners likely won't be able to get their cars fixed until March.
That's because Ford needs to make the part to fix one of the issues and then send it to the dealers. Ford told the dealer Newswatch 12 spoke with that the parts won't be delivered until March.
The company is recalling certain 2010 to 2013 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and Ford Police Interceptor sedans.
Ford says there's an issue with the interior door handles.
The door could become unlatched in a side impact crash.
The company is also recalling certain 2014 Ford Transit Connect vehicles for safety belt fasteners that might not have been properly tightened.
The company says there haven't been any reported injuries from the two issues.
Ford will send a letter with instructions to customers whose cars have been recalled.
