Ford has issued a new recall for the 2014 F-150 because of a problem with the EPAS which could result in a loss of power steering while driving.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are a total of 5,675 units of the Ford F-150, from the 2014 model year, which will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the EPAS (Electronic Power Assist Steering) fixed. The NHTSA says that because of an improperly placed motor position sensor inside the EPAS, this could lead to a loss of power steering while driving, increasing the risk of a crash and accident.
The 2014 Ford F-150 units affected by this recall have been produced between the 26th of May and the 19th of June. The problem has been discovered by a supplier on the 17th of June but it seems that until now there have been no accidents related to this issue. The model’s owners will be notified on the subject soon and the company’s dealers will be inspecting the affected vehicles and make the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge.
