Seems there is potential for the steering wheel to come loose/off, so Ford has announced a recall.  This link has the article and affected models are listed in the last paragraph.  Since Hermosillo plant is llisted I think some of us are gonna be getting letters!

Yeah, 1.4 million is a big chunk to swallow.  Hopefully all they need is some loctite and so can move through quickly.  We are a '13 so we are good, for now.  My '10 just got a recall for the Takata airbags, so who knows what is coming.

My thoughts on this are that they are bringing in ANY units that could possibly be affected.  I have a suspicion that they have lot numbers for the parts that could be substandard and will pull them and replace with new ones if needed.  If not needed, it'll be a quick stop for us.

On my dealer's list now - they had not even been officially informed by Ford yet. Due to the number of parts needed dealers are going to be getting 3-4 per week initially. Job will take no more than 30 mins.

Kinda figured that on time to fix.  I read another article that stated they basically have to remove the current bolts and put in longer ones with some Loctite or something.  I can hit the dealer up for this when I schedule my 30K oil change.
