Ford Recalls 1.3 Million F-150s in North America

2017 Ford Super Duty

"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 said in a statement.

The affected trucks include 2015, 2016 and 2017 model year F-150s and some 2017 Super Duty trucks. While the company said that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue, it increases the risk for injury.

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

The reference number for this recall is 17S33.

According to CNBC, Ford previously said it planned to spend $935 million on fixing vehicles that were included in recalls going back to August 2016.

Reuters reported that Ford has recalled over 5 million vehicles since 2016 that had issues with door latches - and that a spokeswoman for the company said customers with affected vehicles will hear from the company next month. It shares were flat at $12.20.
