The legendary Ford F-150 is headed for a recall

Even the mighty fall sometimes, and this is definitely the case of the Ford F-150 pickup, the world’s best seller for so long I can’t remember off the top of my head.

Ford’s just announced that they are going to be calling back in quite a number of their most successful product in order to fix something pretty important for the F-150’s passengers.

As it turns out, the recall isn’t going to be related to the engine, the brakes, fire hazards or any other major road safety issues.

The actual problem with the Ford F-150 is with the door handles. The interior ones of the Ford F-150 are covered in a housing embossment that may fracture with normal use.

If that happens, the doors may open in an accident. I’m not sure how exactly that’s a problem unless your accident is with a flock of cows.

Even so, Ford is calling in 280.946 F-150 sold in the U.S. and another set of 68.000 that went to Canada. All of these cars have been built between January 18, 2008 and November 30, 2009.
