The latest news from Ford raises concerns for American customers. On Monday, the automaker announced that 17,616 2021 Super Duty pickups will be recalled due to a major issue that the hub extensions are “improperly tightened by the supplier.” As a result, the front wheels may simply come off. The recall campaign only affects certain Dualie models, and these are the most heavily designed trucks.
Ford will officially announce the recall of affected truck owners next week. You can independently determine if your car is on the list of problem models on the website of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. You can then contact your local dealer to arrange a repair.
It should be noted that the positive thing about this whole situation is that as a result of this problem, no incidents or injuries were recorded, but the company still urges owners not to use the car until the malfunction is corrected.
