What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Ford truck must be performed by a Ford dealership. Tactical began notifying known owners of affected vehicles in August, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
