Ford F-Series Super Duty Trucks Recalled For Axle Problems

Posted in Recalls

— Ford is recalling nearly 33,000 F-Series Super Duty trucks with rear axle shafts that may break and cause the trucks to roll away.

The 2019 F-Series trucks have passenger rear axle assemblies that electronically lock, but the axle shafts may have been built with steel that didn't meet specifications.

In addition to a truck rolling away, a fractured axle shaft will cause a loss of motive power while driving in two-wheel-drive.

The 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks were built in Kentucky and Ohio between May 21 and July 26, 2019.

About 28,579 trucks are located in the U.S., 4,316 are recalled in Canada and 73 are in Mexico.

Although a broken axle shaft could cause trouble when driving or even when the truck is parked, Ford says no crash or injury reports have been received.

Ford didn't announce when the F-Series truck recall will begin, but dealerships will inspect the passenger-side rear axle shafts and replace any that are labeled with certain batch codes.

Truck owners with questions should call 866-436-7332 and refer to recall number 19S31.
