Ford Issues Windshield Adhesion Recall

Ford Motor Company (Ford) recently issued a safety recall for select truck models. According to the company, the affected vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because the front windshields are inadequately bonded to the vehicle body structure.

“In the event of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place, which may increase the risk of occupant injury,” a portion of a press release reads.

The recall affects 79,017 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 6,986 in Canada and 1,347 in Mexico, including:

  • 2021 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Truck Plant from Oct. 27, 2020, to Feb. 3, 2021
  • 2020-21 Ford Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 13, 2020, to Jan. 23, 2021

Ford stated it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition. The company said it will notify all impacted vehicle owners beginning the week of April 6. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21C06.
