Oak Hill, WV (WOAY) – Ford is recalling hundreds of thousands of its newest F-150 truck models due to issues with the parking brake.
The recall includes more than 870,000 vehicles from 2021 through 2023.
According to Ford, the parking brake may activate automatically, increasing the risk of a crash.
The company reports it has received almost 300 claims of unexpected parking brake activation — including 19, which occurred while the trucks were in motion.
Ford says it does not know if any crashes or injuries resulted from the incidents.
Owners should be getting the recall letters on September 11th.
However, Ford advises consumers to have their vehicles inspected at a dealership which will be free of charge.
