The latest safety recalls by Ford involve 2020-2021 F-150 Pickup trucks issues for incorrect payload information and inadequate windshield adhesion. Ford said that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries involving the recall issues.
Ford Issues Recalls For Incorrect Payload Information
Ford is recalling 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles with 6.7-liter engines for incorrect payload information built at Kentucky Truck Plant from May 13, 2019, to Sept. 19, 2020.
Ford will recall 9,979 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 1,750 in Canada.
Ford said, affected vehicles display overstated payload capacity values on the tire and loading information label, overstated accessory reserve capacity values on the safety certification label, and overstated weight values on the truck camper loading documentation
“If the vehicles are loaded to the payload stated on the tire and loading information label, they may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating,” Ford said. “This may result in tire loading beyond rated capacity, suspension overload, and increased stopping distance, which could increase the risk of a crash.”
Ford claims they are not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.
The company will notify affected owners the week of March 22 and dealers will replace the tire and loading information label, safety certification label, and if needed, the truck camper loading document. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21S06.
Ford Issues Recalls For Inadequate Windshield Adhesion
Ford has announced safety recalls for its bestselling 2020-2021 F-150 pickup truck for an issue with windshields that were inadequately bonded to the vehicle.
The affected 2020-2021 F-150 vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because the front windshields are not adequately bonded to the vehicle body structure, Ford said. In the case of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place.
The recall affects a specific number of F-150 tracks: 79,017 of them in the U.S., 6,986 in Canada, and 1,347 in Mexico., including:
- 2021 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Truck Plant from Oct. 27, 2020, to Feb. 3, 2021
- 2020-21 Ford Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 13, 2020, to Jan. 23, 2021
Ford confirmed that there is no report of any accidents or injuries involving this windshield issue.
If you own affected F-150 vehicles, notifications will begin on April 6. Dealers will remove the affected part and replace it with the new one. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21C06.
