24: Headlamp Shorts
Another recent recall for Ford was related to the headlamps dimming and flickering, again on F-150 trucks. When Ford set out to create a new platform, the F-150 was at the top of the list. But with all of that innovation also came the need to research and develop, and it seems like that was missed in a few spots. Nevertheless, the recall affected 310,000 cars and 217,000 F-150 pickup trucks. If you drive one of these vehicles then you either had the problem or you got the recall notice.
Ford’s quality has improved in the last decade, but there are still shortcomings like this that happen. Sure the cars are a lot better, but when you have safety recalls happening over and over again that just isn’t a good thing. The Ford F-150 models were among some of the most popular trucks in the world, and a recall is not a good look.
