Ford recalls over a million trucks

2017 Ford Super Duty

The recall will allow for the installation of a water shield to side door latches in 2015-17 F-150s and 2017 Super Duty trucks. The recall is associated with faulty door latches that could cause water to infiltrate the door, eventually leading to the failure of the latch. The recall includes trucks sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

"In affected vehicles, a frozen door latch or a bent or kinked actuation cable may result in a door that will not open or will not close condition", Ford said in a statement.

Ford dealers will install water shields over door latches and inspect and fix actuation cables if necessary at no cost to customers. In total, 1,344,605 units are impacted.

Ford estimates the cost of the recall at $267 million.

When that happens, a door may appear closed, but the latch might not be engaged, creating the risk that the door could open while driving.

Israel jets under fire from Syria retaliate with bombing raid near Damascus
Israel has largely stayed out of the fighting in Syria, but has occasionally carried out strikes on Syrian military positions. On Monday morning, the Syrian air defense battery fired an interceptor missile at Israeli reconnaissance planes.

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

2015-17 F-150, built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, March 12, 2014 to December 31, 2016.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule.

Despite the hit, Ford said that it still expected to earn between $1.65 and $1.85 per share for the full year.

The latch could open while the truck is moving, and/or prevent the driver from opening the door as needed.
