Ford recalling 1.3 million F-series pickups

Ford is recalling 1.3 million vehicles to fix a problem with doors and waterproofing

The automaker is recalling model year 2015 to 2017 F-150 trucks and model year 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks. The Super Duty was also resigned for 2017 for the first time in two decades.

Ford is recalling 1.3 million F-series pickup trucks, the best selling vehicle in America, for a door latch problem that could allow the door to open while the truck is moving. Last September, Ford recalled 211,000 cars in North America due to a problem with side door latches that that the company said is unrelated to this recall, CNBC reported.

To prevent frozen door latches before old man winter comes around, Ford will install water shields over the latches, in addition to fixing any broken actuation cables, free of charge. Ford testing shows that the faulty latches are failing after exposure to water, which could cause the door to open randomly.

Co-op work terms, field placements and clinical placements are continuing, except those that require faculty supervision. Beyond that disappointment, the labour action throws the whole semester into question, she said.

The F-Series pickups are huge profit drivers for Ford and are usually the best-selling vehicles in the United States every year.

Weigandt said Ford's decision to issue a recall is driven by data.

According to a report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Ford expects that repairs for the trucks will cost around $267 million. Under these conditions, owners may still be able to close the door, but the latch may not fully engage. It shares were flat at $12.20.
