In the news this month, Ford is recalling 2 million F-150 pickup trucks because seat belts in them can spark and cause fires. Aside from never hearing of a seat belt sparking a fire before, it got me thinking about other recalls for the F-150.
So our question tonight is: How many current recalls are there for the F-150 pickup truck?
80 recalls active as of 9/20/18
In one report, a deer ran into the driver’s side of a pickup, causing minor damage. The side air bags inflated, and after five to 10 minutes, a passenger noticed a fire on the bottom of the post between the front and rear doors where the seat belts are located. “The truck went up in complete flames in a matter of minutes and is a complete loss,” the owner wrote.
Thanks to all that checked into the net. Special thanks to N6CIZ for use of the repeater.
