Among the seventy-four (74) recalls the NHTSA has announced in February 2021, comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 21V090000 model year 2021 Ford F-150 and 2020-2021 Ford F-250, Ford F-350, Ford F-450 and Ford F-550 Super Duty Pickup Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Visibility – Inadequate Windshield Bonding in apparent contravention of US 212

NHTSA Safety Notification 21V090000 reports during manufacturing, the Windshield may not have been properly bonded to the vehicle, allowing it to detach in a crash. As such, these vehicles reportedly fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 212, “Windshield Mounting.”

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, motor vehicle collision (“MVC”) or other impact event, if the Windshield separates from the vehicle, it can increase the risk of driver and/or passenger injury.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat lacerations, concussions, bone fractures, amputation, central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and/or internal injuries.

Please note that under 49 United States Code § 30112(a), it is illegal for anyone, including a manufacturer, distributor, dealer or retailer to sell an item of equipment or vehicle that fails to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
