IMPORTANT

Since the launch of the 14S09 Advance Bulletin (June 10, 2014), Ford has identified additional
vehicles affected by this recall. The production date range has expanded. The Additional
vehicles were added to OASIS on June 24, 2014.

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Certain 2014 model year F-150 vehicles equipped with Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS)
built at the Dearborn Assembly Plant and Kansas City Assembly Plant from May 26, 2014
through June 19, 2014. Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS.

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

In some of the affected vehicles, the EPAS gear motor position sensor magnet may have been
installed incorrectly. An incorrectly installed EPAS gear motor position sensor magnet may lead
to impaired steering, including the loss of steering control, which could increase the risk of a
crash.
So if you have a 2014 that you bought recently take your VIN to or call a Dealer ASAP and see if you need to get them to tow your vehicle and get you a rental car. DO NOT DRIVE IT.

I guess they realized the new guy didn't know what he was doing.

I'd be surprised if any of those vehicles were in customers hands yet TBH.

You'd be surprised how fast the F-150 moves on a lot.

OH MY GAWD, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE !!

I set fire to the Raptor immediately after reading this, blamed it on the defect, should be getting my $100,000 settlement soon.

Here's the actual text of the article :

Quote:
Ford Motor Co. has told owners of its top-selling current model 2014 F-150 pickup trucks to park them until a power steering issue affecting 5,675 of the vehicles is fixed, the company said on its website on Tuesday.

No accidents or injuries have been reported because of the issue, Ford said.

The suspect trucks are also not to be sold until they are fixed, Ford said. The company is recalling the suspected 5,675 trucks, expanding a previous recall of 372 trucks earlier this month.

The trucks were made from May 26 to June 19.

As of Tuesday, Ford had delivered about 260 of the 5,675 vehicles to customers, and the rest were either at dealerships or on their way to dealers, Ford said.

The affected electronic power assist steering gears may have a motor position sensor magnet that was incorrectly installed by a supplier, the automaker said. Ford did not identify the supplier.
Doesn't specify if it was deliveries to Canada or the US, or both.
