Drivers side door handle became inoperative for no apparent reason. Cannot get out of car through drivers door without using outside handle by reaching out of window. This problem has been a recall on other years and similar makes with Ford but not my vehicle. No way to know if door is properly latched and cannot get out if emergency.

The latch on the front passenger door does not close properly, unless you adjust it manually. It happens whenever the door is opened and closed.

I got to work and I couldn't open my driver's side door to exit the car. I tried locking and unlocking, using the key fab to lock and unlock and eventually I had to climb over the passenger seat and exit via the passenger door.
