Asia Bizz: American automotive giant, Ford, has recalled some 363,000 F-150 pickup trucks in the country. It is a strong blow to an American car company who has enjoyed the pride of producing quality vehicles in the nation. The sole reason these pickups have been called back is due to the faulty door issue in its vehicles.
According to the automotive experts and analysts, Ford F-150’s have an eerie problem with its door handles. The spring of the latch will fail to come back or move to its normal position if it is involved in a side impact accident, as the passenger in the vehicle will allegedly be stuck inside.
The issue has been noticed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [NHTSA], and they have asked Ford to rectify it. Ford had now requested the owners of the F-150’s to bring in their trucks to the nearest Ford dealer and replace them with new handles. The notification of the recall will be provided to the F-150 owners across America from the 14th February. As of now there are no reports of any accidents or even deaths due this issue.
