More than 63,000 Ford 2022 Broncos and Rangers are potentially affected by inadequate windshield bonding, resulting in the manufacturer issuing a recall for the vehicles.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), inadequate front windshield bonding may result in the windshield separating from the vehicle. That, in turn, increases the risk of injury in the event of a collision.
“The windshield may not have been properly bonded to the vehicle, which could allow it to detach. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 212, ‘Windshield Mounting,’” the administration writes.
The total number of potentially-affected vehicles is 63,294. Notification letters will be mailed to vehicle owners on July 11. Dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield at no cost, according to NHTSA and Ford Motor Company.
