Ford F-150, 2017 Ford Super Duty: Recall Alert

Ford recalls 1.3 million F-series pickups

The latch could open while the truck is moving, and/or prevent the driver from opening the door as needed. In the first nine months of 2017, Ford has sold more than 820,000 of its F-Series pickups.

Ford Motor Co. issued a recall of 1.3 million trucks in North America Wednesday after discovering the vehicle doors may suddenly swing open while driving.

The company's dealers will install water shields over door latches and inspect and fix door latch actuation cables if necessary free of charge to customers.

Even if customers are able to open and close the door, that latch may not fully engage, meaning the door could fling open while driving, Ford warned. The Limited trim has been available on the light-duty F-150 since 2015 and will now be offered on F-250, F-350 and F-450 pickups.

Ford said is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

According to a report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Ford expects that repairs for the trucks will cost around $267 million.

Weigandt said Ford's decision to issue a recall is driven by data.

The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States and has been for decades.

In September, Ford sold 82,302 F-Series trucks, up 21.4 percent from a year earlier.
