F-150 and Super Duty Recalled

Ford is recalling 1.3 Million F-150 and Super Duty Trucks because door latches can freeze up in the winter or it could have a bent or kinked actuation cable. This means doors may not open or fully close depending on the problem. Makes me glad the diesel F-150 is still in development so Ford can correct this before it goes into production.

Thankfully I park indoors because where I live one day you can have mild conditions that will melt snow enough to get in your door seams and hours later get into a dangerous level of cold that will freeze your doors shut. Not good when you have this issue on top of that.

Could also mean there's a leak of some kind, where moisture is getting into places it shouldn't and doing damage from the inside.

Water should be getting into the seals. Only time my car froze shut was when it rained and then the temperature dropped rapidly.

"1.3 Million F-150 and Super Duty Trucks" - sounds like a lot of money. Anyways, in terms of production, it's still not too late, especially with upcoming Diesel F-150 which MUST be perfect for its launch.

There's only so much they can do to perfect a product before it comes to market, they have set deadlines that in this industry are vital to stick to. Its not uncommon for a car/truck maker to release a product with problems that aren't severe but in time fix the issue. Many pros and cons to doing it but overall its always well into the pros.

I do agree with the time constraint because it's always about releasing the latest thing first and making a splash. That's what Tesla did and then other companies followed and are catching up. If Ford slacked off with release dates, other companies may release the rival car first and buyers may switch over.

Ford needs to improve quality control for F-150s because there's a new recall for loose front seats. Fortune says around 202,274 2016 Ford F-150 and 2016 Ford Explorer vehicles have this problem and it's affecting cars with front power seat adjusters. So in case of a crash, the front seat could move more than it should.

Doesn't seem like a big deal to me. A bolt in the power seat adjuster can come loose or fall out. Some will pass inspection, if not, they will clean and reinstall them with an adhesive to keep them secured.

Lucky for Ford the F150 and Explorer have been due for new generation models which makes it much easier to deal with issues like this, even more so when both new generations are launching not too far off from each other. What that means financially is significant to what we will get and experience as customers.
