According to report, the recalled cars are 2015-17 F-150 pickups and 2017 Super Duty pickups over faulty side door latches.
Ford added that Ford dealers will install water shield to car owners for free and that the recall will cost the company $267 million which will reflect on the company’s fourth quarter income statement.
A Ford spokeswoman, Elizabeth Weigandt, confirmed the racall adding that customers would be notified next month but did not have a timetable for when parts will be available.
Ford has now recalled more than 5 million vehicles for varying door latch-related issues since 2016, but the company said the issue in the new recall is different from prior ones.
Weigandt said Ford’s decision to issue a recall is driven by data. “When the data indicates a safety recall is needed, we move quickly,” she said.
