2017 Ford F-150

Ford Motor Company has recalled 1.3 million F-Series pickups over a faulty door latch that may allow the door to open while the vehicle is in motion.

The company estimates that the recall will cost it $267 million in the fourth quarter, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

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

To prevent frozen door latches before old man winter comes around, Ford will install water shields over the latches, in addition to fixing any broken actuation cables, free of charge.




The Center for Auto Safety, a nonprofit group founded by Ralph Nader, on Monday called on Ford to recall more than 1 million Explorer SUVs for alleged risk of carbon-monoxide poisoning. The second-largest USA automaker also said its full-year adjusted earnings per share will still be in the range of $1.65 to $1.85 a share.

The company in November 2016 sent a bulletin to dealers that warned some 2015-2017 Ford F-150 trucks could have inoperative latches during freezing temperatures. Ford reports that it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the recall. The majority of the trucks are in the United States, but some are located in Canada and Mexico as well.

Ford shares fell 0.7 percent to $12.19 in late trading Wednesday.
