Ford Truck Windshields ‘Inadequately Bonded’

I don’t think it would be biased in any way to say that Ford knows how to make a good pickup truck. 

Their F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the U.S. since 1976 and the best-selling overall vehicle in America since 1981. 

That’s why it came as a surprise when the company recently announced that it would need to recall 87,350 F-150 and Super Duty Trucks due to windshields that, according to the company, "are inadequately bonded to the vehicle body structure.”

The notice went on to explain that in the event of a crash, the windshield’s inability to stay connected to the frame could result in a greater risk of injury. The affected vehicles were built at Ford's Dearborn and Kentucky plants between October 2020 and early February of this year.
