What to Do if You're Concerned About the Ford Truck Recalls
If you purchased a 2010 Ford Ranger or one of the affected 2011 truck or crossover models, you can and should take action if the Ford truck recalls have caused you concern.
What action you take will vary, depending on which vehicle you have:
- 2010 Ford Ranger owners - a Ford dealer can trim the throttle body shield so it is not up against the fuel line. Additionally, a dealer can inspect the truck for signs of wear and replace the fuel line free of charge.
- 2011 F Series and Crossover owners - a Ford dealer can inspect the body control module and replace it free of charge.
Since March 7, 2011 when the recall began, owners of any of the recalled models can contact the Ford Motor Co. customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332.
