Ford recalls 1.3 million trucks; doors could open while driving

  • 2017 Ford F-150

According to the recall from Ford, a frozen door latch or bent or kinked actuation in the affected trucks is causing the issue. Under these conditions, owners may still be able to close the door, but the latch may not fully engage.

The affected trucks include 2015, 2016 and 2017 model year F-150s and some 2017 Super Duty trucks. In the first nine months of 2017, Ford has sold more than 820,000 of its F-Series pickups.

Customers will be notified by letter to let them know they are part of the recall beginning the week of November 13.

In an effort to remedy the problem, Ford dealerships will be instructed to inspect the door latches and actuation cables.

The reference number for this recall is 17S33.

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. Ford said it continues to expect full-year adjusted earnings in the range of $1.65 to $1.85‍ per share.

Iraqi forces launch operation for Kurdish-held oil fields, military base
Crisis talks on Sunday made little headway in resolving an armed standoff between Kurdish and Iraqi forces in the province. Iraq's military command rushed to issue a statement denying media reports that it had commenced operations for the city.

The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States and has been for decades. The recall is associated with faulty door latches that could cause water to infiltrate the door, eventually leading to the failure of the latch.

Ford has previously disclosed plans to spend $935 million on other recalls announced since August 2016.
