2021-22 Ford F-150
Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company
Number of vehicles affected: 58,203
Report Date: August 12, 2022
Issue: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2021-2022 F-150 vehicles. Underbody heat and noise insulators may loosen and contact the aluminum driveshaft, which could damage the driveshaft and cause it to fracture. A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power, or a loss of vehicle control if the driveshaft contacts the ground. Additionally, unintended movement could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged. Any of these scenarios increases the risk of a crash.
Solution: Dealers will inspect and repair the driveshaft, as necessary, and properly attach the underbody insulators, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed September 1, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 22S53.
