Ford recalling 1.3 million F-series pickups

Ford Motor Company (F) announced on Wednesday it is recalling approximately 1.3 million vehicles in North America, including some versions of its F-150 and Super Duty trucks, to add a water shield to side door latches.

Ford estimates it will cost $267 million to make the repairs. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

The Associated Press reports that a frozen door latch or bent cable in the affected vehicles could cause the door not to open or close.

Dealers will install water shields over the door latches and inspect and fix door latch cables if needed.

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.
