Ford recalls 1.3 million trucks due to correct issue with door latch

Ford is recalling 1.3 million vehicles to fix a problem with doors and waterproofing

The recall involves 1.1 million trucks in the United States, more than 222,000 trucks in Canada and 21,000 trucks in Mexico. The Limited trim has been available on the light-duty F-150 since 2015 and will now be offered on F-250, F-350 and F-450 pickups.

Ford is issuing a safety recall for 1.3 million trucks across North America, affecting 2015 to 2017 model year F-150s and 2017 model year Super Duty trucks.

Also included in the recall are some 2017 super duty pickups.

Ford dealerships will install water shields and make any repairs that are necessary free of charge to customers.

Donald Trump said Mike Pence wanted to 'hang all the gays'
The President took the opportunity to crack a joke about Pence's opposition to gay rights. "You see?" Trump asked Pence. President Donald Trump has reportedly said he believes, "jokingly", his VP Mike Pence wants to "hang all the gays".

The company in November 2016 sent a bulletin to dealers that warned some 2015-2017 Ford F-150 trucks could have inoperative latches during freezing temperatures.

A frozen latch found in these vehicles may cause doors to not open or close correctly.

The move is expected to cost the company's North American unit an estimated $267 million in the final three months of the year. Under these conditions, owners may still be able to close the door, but the latch may not fully engage.

The recall comes not long after Ford outlined a plan to cut costs by $14 billion in order to help fund the development of future product - mainly hybrids and EVs. While the company said that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue, it increases the risk for injury. It shares were flat at $12.20.
