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

1.3M Ford F-Series Pickups Recalled Over Faulty Door Latches

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Ford said the recall will cost about $267 million and would be reflected in the company's fourth-quarter 2017 results.

The auto giant says it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the latch issue. Ford testing shows that the faulty latches are failing after exposure to water, which could cause the door to open randomly.

Dealers will install water shields over the door latches and inspect and fix door latch cables if needed. If a person is able to open and close the door regardless of these conditions, the door may not latch properly and could pop open while driving, "increasing the risk of injury". Ford's F-Series line remained the top-selling vehicle in the country in 2016.

The affected trucks include 2015, 2016 and 2017 model year F-150s and some 2017 Super Duty trucks.
