Hold Onto Your Windshields, Folks: Recall Issued for Some F-150s

Those who work on or own 2024 Ford F-150s may want to keep an eye on their windshields. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently issued another recall on the vehicle, this time for windshields that may detach during a crash.

Though not as widespread as the recall that affected over 200,000 F-150s in March, NHTSA recall campaign number 24V486000 could impact about 4,361 of the 2024 trucks. The NHTSA says because the windshield may not have been correctly bonded to the vehicle, it could detach during a wreck. The windshield violates federal safety standards for windshield mounting, according to the NHTSA.

The organization says it expects Ford to mail customer notification letters today, July 8. NHTSA’s notice says Ford dealers will remove and reinstall the faulty windshields for free.
