Ford says about 5,700 Mustang cars have doors that could open during a crash.

— Ford is recalling more than 5,750 model year 2017 Ford Mustangs to repair problems with the return springs on the left-hand interior door handles.

Ford says the Mustangs have left-hand door handles that may have been built with return springs that are out of position. The door could unlatch in a side impact if the interior door handle return spring is unseated, primarily due to loads placed on the door handle.

Although a door opening during a crash is never a good thing, the automaker says it is unaware of any accidents or injuries caused by the defect.

The 2017 Ford Mustangs were built between January 13 to January 31, 2017. About 5,470 Mustangs are in the U.S., 20 are in Mexico and 266 are located in Canada.

Dealers will inspect the left-hand interior door handle springs and fix them, if needed.

The Ford Mustang door handle recall should begin April 24, 2017, but if you own a 2017 Ford Mustang and have questions now, call Ford at 866-436-7332 and refer to recall number 17C04.
