Ford F-150 Steering Shaft Recall:
The automotive manufacturer Ford Motor Company is recalling some 2015 Ford F-150 trucks manufactured between March 19, 2015, and March 30, 2015. The affected trucks may have been built with a steering upper intermediate shaft that was improperly riveted during the manufacturing process.
What Can Happen:
If the intermediate shaft was improperly riveted, it could separate from the intermediate shaft flex coupling, resulting in a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a vehicle crash with injury or death.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the intermediate shaft and replace it, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on May 22, 2015. Consumers may contact Ford customer service directly at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S17.
