In the United States, Ford is recalling over 650,000 pickup trucks and large SUVs because the windshield wipers can break and malfunction.
The recall affects 2020 and 2021 Ford F-150 pickup trucks, as well as Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs. From 2020 to 2022, F-250, 350, 450, and 550 trucks are also included.
Ford’s F-Series pickup trucks are the most popular automobiles in the United States.
The corporation claims that the wiper teeth aren’t the correct height in documents released by US safety officials on Thursday. The wiper arms may become stripped as a result of this. According to documents, faulty wiper arms can impair visibility and increase the chance of a collision.
Both front windshield wiper arms will be replaced by dealers. Beginning May 23, owners will be notified by letter.
As of Feb. 25, Ford had received 754 reports of faulty wiper arms. Due to a global shortage of computer chips, some of the trucks were manufactured with higher-torque wiper motors.
