Owners of America’s bestselling pickup truck are affected in two separate recalls just issued by Ford. The first one affects roughly 79,000 model-year 2020-21 F-150 light-duty pickups and Super Duty heavy-duty pickups, while the second affects roughly 10,000 model-year 2020 Super Duty HDs with 6.7-liter engines.
For the population of 79,000, the front windshields are inadequately bonded to the truck’s body structure. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place, increasing the risk of injury.
For the 10,000 HDs, affected trucks display overstated payload capacities on the labels for tire and loading information. They also overstate accessory reserve capacities on the safety certification labels and weights on the documentation for truck camper loading. Loading to those values may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating, which may result in suspension overload and increased stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford said it’s not aware of any accidents or injuries related to either condition. Owner notifications for the windshields will begin the week of April 6, and for the payload labels March 22. Dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield using standard service procedures, or replace the label for tire and loading information, the label for safety certification and, if needed, the documentation for truck camper loading. All repairs will be done for free. Owners with questions can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236. They also can visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
