Car Accident Advice often obtains recall notices before dealers and owners.  The NHTSA recommends that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before requesting the work to be done.   However, you can ask your Ford F150 Recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems repaired quickly.  

In the United States, safety car recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer.  Car manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to owners and dealers.

Notices get lost in the mail or discarded as junk mail.  Even after these attempts to notify customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue car recalls have the recall work completed for Ford F150 Recalls.
