Ford recalls over a million trucks

Posted October 19, 2017

Some of the trucks are prone to having a door latch freeze in cold weather or a bent or kinked actuation cable that interferes with the door's operation.

The recall involves 1.1 million trucks in the United States, more than 222,000 trucks in Canada and 21,000 trucks in Mexico. 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".

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.

More than 1,000 people have been killed, including about 800 militants. "So, it's huge money", the defense chief said. The deaths of Hapilon and Maute signal the end of the militant groups, Ano said.

Ford said the cost of the new recall would be reflected in its fourth-quarter results. Ford reports that it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the recall.

Dealers can fix the problem with the vehicles, Ford wrote, by installing water shields over the latches and repairing the damaged actuation cables.

The reference number for this recall is 17S33.
