DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling 91 all-new 2015 Ford F-150 pickup trucks in North America because improperly installed or missing underbody heat shields could increase the risk of a fire, the automaker said in a statement.
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires linked to the recall.
The affected F-150s were built from January 30, 2015 to January 31, 2015 at the Dearborn Truck Plant.
Ford dealers will inspect the pickups for incomplete underbody heat shields and fasteners and install missing components. The recall is expected to begin on May 11. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.
This is the first recall for the new F-150.
No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Dealers expect to receive parts shortly. When owners get their official recall notice, they should schedule a service appointment.
