Wiper motor issue leads Ford to recall 550,000 F-150 trucks

DETROIT -- An issue with the windshield wiper motors has led Ford to recall an estimated 550,000 F-150 trucks in the U.S. and Canada. According to the Associated Press, the issue impacts 2021 and 2022 models of the popular truck because the motors can stop working, reducing visibility and increasing the risk of crash. Dealerships will replace the motor at no cost to the customer and impacted owners will be notified starting on Jan. 3, 2023. It’s expected that 453,650 trucks will be recalled in the U.S. and the rest will be recalled in Canada.
