Ford recalls 1.3M F-Series pickups, including 2017 Super Duty

Ford is issuing a safety recall for 1.3 million trucks across North America, affecting 2015 to 2017 model year F-150s and 2017 model year Super Duty trucks. The recall is associated with faulty door latches that could cause water to infiltrate the door, eventually leading to the failure of the latch. Affected trucks are 1.1 million in the United States, more than 222,000 in Canada and 21,000 trucks in Mexico.

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.

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

Dealers are to install the water shields and make repairs, if needed, for free. In total, 1,344,605 units are impacted. If a person is able to open and close the door regardless of these conditions, the door may not latch properly and could pop open while driving, "increasing the risk of injury".


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

2015-17 F-150, built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Aug. 11, 2014 to December 30, 2016.

Ford has previously disclosed plans to spend $935 million on other recalls announced since August 2016. The second-largest US automaker also said its full-year adjusted earnings per share will still be in the range of $1.65 to $1.85 a share.

Although the F-Series roots are as a work truck, Ford has been pushing the vehicle line upscale. It shares were flat at $12.20.
