2017-2022 Ford Super Duty Trucks Recalled Over Driveshaft Safety Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2017-2022 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 models over an issue with the aluminum driveshaft in gas-powered models.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the underbody thermal/acoustic insulators may loosen and contact the aluminum driveshaft, resulting in marking or scoring of the driveshaft. Over time, the aluminum driveshaft may fracture due to a localized overload condition caused by material thickness reduction.

The hazards: a fractured driveshaft may result in loss of motive power while driving, unintended vehicle movement while the vehicle is in park if the parking brake is not applied, and secondary damage to surrounding components. A fractured driveshaft may also contact the ground which may cause loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of an injury or crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Components: driveshaft.

Affected vehicles: select gas-powered 2017-2022 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 trucks.

Number of vehicles affected: 247,445 vehicles.

The fix: dealers will inspect and repair the driveshaft as necessary, and properly attach the underbody insulators, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin April 4th, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 22S09.
