Ford is expanding a pickup truck recall out to 5,675 units over a power steering issue.
Ford originally had the problem pegged in just 372 F-150s from the 2014 model year, but an unnamed supplier source notified the company that the issue is more widespread. The problem is an incorrectly installed gear motor position sensor magnet that can degrade steering, including the loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford has only delivered 270 defective trucks to customers, while the rest are still on dealer lots. No injuries or collision have been reported as a result of this recall.
