By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 28,600 model-year 2019 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickup trucks built at the Kentucky Truck Plant and Ohio Assembly Plant from May 21 to July 26

The Problem: The electronic locking rear-axle assembly may have a passenger-side axle shaft manufactured with steel that doesn't meet Ford specifications, which may lead to a fracture and loss of motive power while driving in two-wheel drive, as well as the inability to hold the Park function. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended movement, increasing the risk of a crash or an injury.

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

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the passenger-side rear axle shaft, and shafts with a suspect batch code will be replaced. Owners are advised to apply the parking brake whenever the vehicle is parked until the service fix is completed.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
