During bad weather yesterday I slid off of the road in my 2003 Ford
Taurus, and during the slide into a ditch my passenger side (Front)
door opened and was crushed on impact (we were now going backwards).
Does anyone know why this would happen? Has Ford has any problems with
the electronic doors opening on there own? Can anyone shed some light
on this problem? Thankfully neither I myself nor my 2 passengers were
hurt badly. Thanks in advance.
My guess is when you slid off the road into the ditch the unibody flexed
somewhat and the door jamb striker and door latch became seperated
allowing the door to swing open.
Your passenger didn't pull on the door handle by any chance?
