Ford issues safety recall for certain F-150, Super Duty vehicles
Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for approximately 1.3 million 2015-17 F-150 and 2017 Super Duty vehicles in North America to add a water shield to side door latches. In affected vehicles, a frozen door latch or a bent or kinked actuation cable may result in a door that will not open or will not close condition. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue. The recall involves approximately 1,344,605 vehicles in North America, including 1,101,107 in the United States and federalized territories, 222,408 in Canada and 21,090 in Mexico. In a regulatory filing, Ford said the cost of the action, which will be incurred by its North America business unit, is estimated to be $267M. The expense will be reflected in fourth quarter 2017 results.
