2015 Ford F-150: Ford Issues First Recall for New F-150
May 6, 2015
It's seemingly a feast of recalls around here. First our A3 and Golf GTI, now our F-150. But in the best fashion of an inexplicable traffic jam, there's nothing to see here. We didn't expect our 2015 Ford F-150 to be one of the 91 trucks affected by Ford's recall for improperly installed or missing underbody heat shields. But our luck with trucks has been suspect lately, so we followed up just to be sure.
The affected trucks were built on January 30 and January 31 at Ford's Dearborn plant. We bought our long-termer in December. That's one trip to the dealer we won't have to make.
The fix includes a dealer visit to install the missing components or fasteners. Owners can call Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673 to learn more. So far, so lucky for us.
