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

2017 Ford F-150

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.

Model-year 2017 Super Duty trucks built at the Kentucky Assembly Plant between October 8, 2015 and September 1, 2016 are also included.

A Ford spokeswoman, Elizabeth Weigandt, said customers would be notified next month but did not have a timetable for when parts will be available.

The company said the cost of the recall was estimated to be $267 million, and would be reflected in its fourth quarter results.

Ford dealerships will install water shields and make any repairs that are necessary free of charge to customers.

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