Ford is recalling approximately 10,000 model-year 2020 Super Duty vehicles equipped with 6.7L Power Stroke diesel due to overstated payload capacity values on the tire and loading information label, overstated accessory reserve capacity values on the safety certification label, and overstated weight values on the truck camper loading documentation. If the vehicles are loaded to the payload stated on the tire and loading information label, they may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating. This could result in tire loading beyond rated capacity, suspension overload, and increased stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford began notifying owners the week of March 22. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the tire and loading information label, safety certification label, and if needed, the truck camper loading document.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
