Most people use these new super duty 5 foot bed pickups to get cigarettes and lotto tickets at the 7 -11 so no big deal not like they are being used for work.

Trucks are the new cars now. Cars have been regulated into useless, uncomfortable, unsafe, unaffordable and unreliable POS.

Ford recalls 73,000 Transit vans, 30,000 F-150 pickups
Fleet Owner Staff | Nov 07, 2017



Ford issued four safety recalls involving Transit vans, which potentially could catch fire, and F-150 trucks. Here are details of the recalls, which concern a towing module that could be corroded by water; two different transmission/ shifting problems; and a small number of improperly machined cylinder heads.

Specifically, these affect 2015-2017 Transits and certain 2017 and 2018 F-150 pickups, with the Transit vans representing by far the largest number of vehicles being recalled.

I. 2015-2017 Ford Transit vehicles equipped with trailer tow module

Ford is recalling approximately 73,000 2015-2017 Ford Transit vans with trailer tow modules. Water can get into the module and connector, Ford said, potentially corroding wiring and damaging the module.

In affected vehicles, water in the module may cause:


—Turn signals to flash rapidly;

—Loss of the instrument cluster display;

—Loss of heater and air conditioning controls; and

—Loss of multimedia including radio, screens and SYNC.

Wiring corrosion
from prolonged water intrusion could also cause an electrical short to the ground, which could cause:



—Faulty seat belt pretensioner deployment;

—A burning smell; and/or

—Increased risk of fire, including when the vehicle is parked and the ignition is off.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue, but knows of two reports of vehicle fires on Canadian fleet vehicles potentially related to this condition.

The reference number for this recall is 17S34.

Affected vehicles include 2015-17 Ford Transit vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from Feb. 3, 2014 to Aug. 2, 2017.The recall involves about 65,000 U.S. vehicles and some 8,000 in Canada.


Ford provided further details of the recall repairs. Until the final repair is performed, customers should take the precaution of parking their vehicles outside.

As an interim repair, until parts are available for the final repair, customers may have dealers disable the trailer module. For the final repair, dealers will add a drainage hole to the driver's door stepwell and incorporate a fuse into the vehicle wiring harness. All services and repairs will be performed at no cost.


II. 2018 Ford F-150 vehicles with 3.3L engine, 6-speed automatic transmission and column-mounted shift lever

Ford is recalling about 15,000 2018 Ford F-150 trucks with 3.3L engines, six-speed transmissions and column-mounted shift lever due to inaccurate gear selection that could result in unintended vehicle movement.

In affected vehicles, moving the transmission shifter from park to drive rapidly may cause loss of the "PRNDL" gear indication in the instrument cluster and momentary engagement of reverse before the vehicle moves forward.

Alternatively, an operator could get a momentary neutral gear selection rather than reverse. Unintended vehicle movement as a result of this may increase the risk of accident or injury.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

The reference number for this recall is 17S35.

Affected vehicles include:

—2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant from Jan. 12, 2017 to Oct. 9, 2017; and
—2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Jan. 30, 2017 to Oct. 9, 2017.

The recall involves about 12,400 U.S. vehicles, 2,000 in Canada and about 575 in Mexico.

As a fix, dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module with the latest level calibration software at no cost to the customer. Prior to the repair, customers and dealers should carefully shift into the desired gear and confirm intended gear selection in the "PRNDL" instrument cluster display.


III. 2017 Ford F-150 vehicles with 10-speed automatic transmission

Ford is recalling some 15,000 2017 Ford F-150s with 10-speed automatics for an inability to shift the transmission using the shift lever.

In affected vehicles, the pin attaching the transmission shift linkage to the transmission may come out.

If this happens, the driver moving the shift lever won't change the transmission gear; the transmission will stay in whatever gear it was in when the pin came out regardless of the position of the shift lever.

The shifter indicator could display inaccurate information, and the key can be removed even if the vehicle is not in park. However, a warning chime will sound and a message will be displayed in the instrument cluster indicating "Transmission not in park."

If the transmission is not in park or neutral, the driver would not be able to restart the vehicle. If a vehicle cannot be shifted to park and the parking brake isn't applied, the vehicle could move unintendedly and increase the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Affected vehicles include:

—2017 Ford F-150s built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from Sept. 16, 2016 to Aug. 9, 2017; and
—2017 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant from Aug. 23, 2016 to July 2, 2017.

The recall involves about 11,800 U.S. vehicles, 3,200 in Canada and 700 in Mexico. The reference number for this recall is 17S36.

To resolve the issue, dealers will remove the roll pin and replace it with an updated part at no cost. Prior to getting their vehicle repaired, customers and dealers will be instructed to make sure the parking brake is applied whenever the vehicle is parked.


IV. 2018 Ford F-150s with 3.5L engine



Ford is recalling about 30 2018 Ford F-150s with 3.5L engines for possible loss of power and engine failure.

In affected vehicles, cylinder heads manufactured for the 3.5L engines are missing machined holes for supplying lubrication to the camshaft. Improper camshaft lubrication will result in premature engine failure and loss of power without warning while driving, increasing the risk of accident or injury.

Ford said it not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue. Ford also noted it not aware of any affected vehicles that have been delivered to customers.

Affected vehicles include:

—2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant from Sept. 3-16, 2017; and
—2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Sept. 5-17, 2017.

The recall involves some 22 U.S. vehicles, seven in Canada and one in Mexico. The reference number for this recall is 17S37.

Ford is tracking down affected vehicles at dealerships. If an affected vehicle is in the possession of an owner, the company said it will arrange to transport the vehicle to a Ford or Lincoln dealer to have the engine replaced at no cost.

DTNA recalls more than 400,000 Freightliner, Western Star trucks over brake lights
Fleet Owner Staff | Dec 19, 2017

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling more than 400,000 Freightliner and Western Star trucks due to a potential problem with the brake lights.

DTNA informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration up to 436,095 model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700, and 6900 models may be affected. The trucks were manufactured between March 27, 2007, and Oct. 30, 2017.

Related: Carson named Western Star president; Platt promoted to head Chinese joint venture

In an e-mailed statement to Fleet Owner, DTNA said it “takes a proactive approach to vehicle safety and has voluntarily decided to recall specific vehicles.” The company added “there are no accidents or injuries known to DTNA relating to the issue associated with this recall.”

DTNA said after a hard-braking event, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights. The failure of brake lights being activated could increase the risk of a crash, as trailing motorists will not be
warned of a slowing down truck, according to the recall notice.


The company said it will begin notifying owners in Jan. 25. Separately, DTNA said it is recalling about 230 model year 2018 Freightliner Cascadia trucks equipped with Detroit automatic transmissions over a possible shifting issue.

FCA recalls 1.5 million Ram trucks over shift lockout problem
Fleet Owner Staff | Dec 28, 2017



Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US is recalling some 1.48 million 2009-2017 trucks due to a problem where the vehicles could be shifted out of park without pressing the brake pedal or even having a key in the ignition. If that happens, the trucks could move unintentionally.

What's officially called the "Brake Transmission Shift Interlock" may not work as it should if subjected to high temperatures for "prolonged periods," FCA stated. A scenario where this could happen, the company explained, is with a vehicle idling in park and the driver's foot held on the brake pedal.

The recall is only for trucks with steering column-mounted shifters. Those with rotary-dial or floor-mounted shifters are unaffected. In terms of transparency, FCA knows of seven potentially related injuries and "a small number" of potentially related accidents, the company stated.

FCA will provide the fix to the potential problem, but the company reminded users to set the parking brake when in park.

"We urge customers to use their
parking brakes, as recommended [in the owner's manual], and to ensure that child occupants are not left unattended," stated Tom McCarthy, head of safety compliance and product analysis at FCA US.


The recall does not affect any 2017 trucks built after Dec. 31, 2016. Trucks included in the recall are:
• Certain 2010-2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups;

• 2011-2017 Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs; and

• 2016-2017 Ram 3500 chassis cabs with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) less than 10,000 lbs.

In addition, some 2009-2017 Ram 1500 pickups are included in the recall, "but heavy-duty trucks represent the majority of the affected vehicles," according to FCA.

Beyond the estimated 1.5 million trucks in the U.S. market, there are about 250,000 and 43,000 trucks in Canada and Mexico, respectively, included in the recall and about another 15,000 scattered outside the NAFTA region.

The company said it will advise affected customers when they may schedule the recall service. Customers with concerns can call FCA US at (866)-220-6747.

Takata adds 3.3 million air bag inflators to massive recall


Associated Press

11 hrs ago



Japanese air bag maker Takata is recalling an additional 3.3 million faulty air bag inflators as it expands the largest automotive recall in U.S. history.

The latest recalls cover frontal air bags in certain 2009, 2010 and 2013 vehicles made Honda, Toyota, Audi, BMW, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Jaguar-Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Tesla. Automakers will provide specific models in paperwork that will be filed later this month with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Notices of the expanded recalls were posted Saturday on the agency's website .

Takata uses the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion and fill air bags quickly in a crash. But the chemical can deteriorate when exposed to high humidity and temperatures and burn too fast, blowing apart a metal canister. That can hurl hot shrapnel into unsuspecting drivers and passengers.

At least 20 people have been killed worldwide and more than 180 injured.

The latest recalls are part of the largest series of automotive recalls in U.S. history, with 19 automakers having to recall up to 69 million inflators in 42 million vehicles. The problem brought a criminal conviction and fine against Takata and forced the Japanese company into bankruptcy protection.

The recalls, which are being managed by NHTSA, are being phased in over the next three years. Older models and those in states with high humidity and temperatures are getting priority.

Many automakers have been slow to replace the potentially deadly inflators. A report by an independent monitor said that as of Sept. 15, 2017, automakers have recalled 43.1 million inflators. Of those, only 18.5 million, or 43 percent, have been replaced even though Takata recalls began in 2001.

NHTSA has said the Takata recalls are unprecedented in size and complexity and have resulted in groundbreaking lessons that will help automakers reach their repair goals. The agency said it is monitoring the automakers' progress and working to expand best practices to boost completion rates. The agency also has the authority to fine automakers that don't make recall repairs in a timely manner.
