Ford recalls 1.3 million F-series pickups

The F-150 pickup has consistently been the best selling vehicle in the country for decades.

More than one million Ford F-series pickup trucks are being recalled in the United States for a door latch problem. Some of the trucks are prone to having a door latch freeze in cold weather or a bent or kinked actuation cable that interferes with the door's operation.

The company said it was not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue but said because of the fault, the door may appear closed, increasing the risk of the door opening while driving.

The average transaction price for a new pickup in 2016 topped $39,000, and it could rise with the introduction earlier this month of Ford's Super Duty Limited vehicles that start at $80,235 for an F-250, $82,010 for an F-350 and $87,100 for an F-450.

Ford dealerships will install water shields and make any repairs that are necessary free of charge to customers.

The reference number for this recall is 17S33.

The auto company says they have not heard of any injuries due to this issue.

According to CNBC, Ford previously said it planned to spend $935 million on fixing vehicles that were included in recalls going back to August 2016.

The recall of the trucks, Ford's best-selling and most profitable model line, is so big that the company made a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission informing investors that it will have an expense of $267 million, which will be reflected the company's fourth quarter 2017 financial results.
