    You might check local laws but i believe it's unlawful for them to not allow you to take your vehicle. Another option is calling Ford Motor Companies customer service and asking what they can do for the fact that you're making a payment on a truck this month that you can't drive.

    My late 2018 build date XLT was checked for the recall when I had it in for yet another brake rotor turning party, they said it was unaffected. Sorry to all who are having problems with a basic function such as tail lights, brakes, etc...

    im curious as it seems daily that others are getting the notices popping up on their Ford Pass.

    in todays technology age, I would assume one press of the button and everyones notified.
    Is that not happening? are they adding to the numbers as they investigate more, finding more trucks may be at risk? or are you guys just opening it and seeing it?

    They send out certain numbers to avoid the deluge of people coming to the dealer all at once. Starting with people who are more at risk for the problem, or earlier build trucks. (This depends on the recall obviously).

    It really doesn't make sense to send 2 million recalls when you only have 75K parts at the warehouse.

    The recall notice popped up on my Ford Pass app a couple of weeks ago. I was planning to deal with it next week, but I was on the freeway and another motorist alerted me that my taillights were not working (thank goodness for the cab brake light, or I would have had no brake lights). I then noticed my turn indicator was flashing quickly, which I hadn't really noticed before. I took my truck into the dealer immediately and a few hours later got a call saying that it had passed the recall inspection and I could come pick it up. I asked if they had verified that the tail lights were functional, and there was silence on the line. The tech then said he would call me back. A half hour later he called back and said the lights were not working, and the recall part had in fact failed, and they would need to keep the truck longer to fix it. He couldn't explain why it passed inspection at first. I have the truck back now and it's working fine, but I'm fairly certain they didn't even perform the inspection in the first instance. So I recommend you keep a close eye on your tail lights, and insist when you take the truck in for inspection that they take care to actually make sure the part hasn't failed or will fail.

    For those who are interested, I have attached the full recall document, which contains detailed images and the full detailed service procedure. It might be of interest to anyone who wants to do a self-inspection following the exact Ford-specified procedure.

    I found the document on this page:

    For me, if the truck itself posts a message (like an error code or warning), the app posts a notification in the Android status bar which I notice right away, but if it's a message from Ford, even a recall apparently, it doesn't do that, I don't see it until I open the app for some other reason. I'm not sure if it behaves differently on iPhones.

    I think you are overreacting and should be thankful they are trying to take care of you the best they can. Crap happens.

    Dropped my truck off in the morning and it was ready by the evening. I’m glad it passed the inspection but I was secretly hoping for the opportunity to drive a rental Mustang or F150 until January.

    Did you look at the connector under the truck to see that it was taped up nicely and zip tied back into place? I will after mine is done. Gotta keep the Ford service department in check.
