Ford recalls over a million trucks

Ford recalls 1.3 million F-series pickups

According to Ford, the recall is impacting some 2015-2017 F-150 and F-Series Super Duty in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

In a press release, the company says the recall affects 1.3 million vehicles, all from the 2017 model year.

Ford's F-150 pickup truck is one of the country's most popular vehicles and a perennial best-seller.

Ford Motor Company has announced a voluntary recall impacting 1.3 million pickup trucks in North America.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the problem.

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.

Even if customers are able to open and close the door, that latch may not fully engage, meaning the door could fling open while driving, Ford warned.

Ford dealerships will install water shields and make any repairs that are necessary free of charge to customers. The Super Duty was also resigned for 2017 for the first time in two decades.

In March, Ford said it would spend $295 million to recall 211,000 vehicles in North America to replace potentially faulty side door latches and 230,000 vehicles for under-hood fire risks. Ford sold 820,000 of the F-series trucks in the USA a year ago. A fully loaded F-450 can run the tab to almost $100,000.
