RECALL: Ford, Lincoln trucks and SUVs recalled to fix windshield wipers
Nearly 653,000 Ford and Lincoln trucks and SUVs has been recalled due to a windshield wiper issue where they may suddenly stop working or even detach.
Included in the recall are 2020-2021 Ford F-150 pickup truck, 2020-2021 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs, and 2020-2022 Ford Super Duty F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks.
The problem is due to a poorly made part in the wiper assembly that can fail prematurely, especially in cold weather where the wipers may have to push through snow and ice. Ford tells the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that there have been 754 reports of wiper failures on the recalled vehicles, but no crashes or injuries. If wipers fail while the vehicle is in motion, drivers may not be able to see the road ahead.
Ford dealerships will replace the faulty wiper arms, free of charge.
