2009-10 Ford F-150s Recalled Over Defective Door Spring

Andrew Peterson
Feb 3, 2011
With tens of millions of vehicles sold around the world each year, and millions more already on the roads, there are sure to be a few defects that go unnoticed and require recalls later on. One such incident announced today involves 2009-2010 Ford F-150s and a potentially defective door spring.

The Problem: Ford discovered that certain F-150s may have been manufactured with a defective interior door handle spring. The spring may fracture during normal usage, causing the spring to weaken and lose the strength to properly secure the door latch. This could cause the door to open in the event of an accident, which prevents a serious safety threat to occupants.
The Fix: Ford will notify owners to take their vehicles into their local Ford or Lincoln dealerships to have the door handle inspected. If the dealer discovers a faulty door spring, it will either reinforce the spring or replace the door handle mount depending on the damage.
