Ford Issues Recalls for F-150, F-650, F-750, and Transit
Recalls Affect Small Number of Units
Ford has issued multiple recalls for its truck and van models. Each of the recalls affects a relatively small number of units for each model. The first is for the 2015 F-150 Super Crew. A total of 3,218 units could potentially have an improperly installed seatbelt retractor and pretensioner. No accidents or injuries have been reported in association with this recall. The recall affects trucks built at the Dearborn plant between January 22, 2015 and March 17, 2015. Of the affected units, 2,590 are in the U.S., 555 in Canada, and 73 in Mexico.
A recall is also being issued for dual-rear-wheel models of the 2015 Transit van. A total of 1,265 units may be prone to rear axleshaft fractures, which could result in a loss of motive power, or unintended vehicle movement while in park. No injuries or accidents have been reported. Of the affected units, 1,170 are in the U.S. and 95 in Canada.
Finally, Ford is recalling 177 2016 F-650 and F-750 trucks for an issue with the rear air brake chamber on models so equipped. It was determined the air brake jounce hoses could contact the rear axlehousing during driving, which could potentially cause a leak and inadvertent application of the parking brake, or result in diminished braking performance. Of the affected units, 167 are in the U.S. and 10 in Canada.
