Ford recalls over a million trucks

Ford has issued a recall for approximately 1.3 million pickup trucks because frozen latches may keep the door from opening or closing properly. Should a customer be able to open and close the door with these conditions, the door may appear closed, but the latch may not fully engage the door striker with the potential that the door could open while driving, increasing the risk of injury.

The auto company says they have not heard of any injuries due to this issue.

Ford dealers will install water shields over door latches and inspect and fix actuation cables if necessary at no cost to customers.

In Security Exchange Commission filings, the Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker said the recall is expected to cost $267 million.

Also included in the recall are some 2017 super duty pickups.


The automaker said it will notify customers by letter the week of November 13 to let them know if their trucks are part of the recall.

Weigandt said Ford's decision to issue a recall is driven by data. Ford said it continues to expect full-year adjusted earnings in the range of $1.65 to $1.85‍ per share.

The automaker is recalling model year 2015 to 2017 F-150 trucks and model year 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks.

The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States and has been for decades.
