  • Ford recalls 1.3 million F-series pickups

The Ford Motor Company is recalling more than one million F-Series pickup trucks due to door latch flaws that could cause vehicle doors to unexpectedly open.

A frozen latch found in these vehicles may cause doors to not open or close correctly.

The company said it was not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue but said because of the fault, the door may appear closed, increasing the risk of the door opening while driving.

Dealers can fix the issue by installing water shields over the door latches and repairing the door latch actuation cables, at no cost to the customer. Affected trucks are 1.1 million in the United States, more than 222,000 in Canada and 21,000 trucks in Mexico.
