Ford is recalling 5,675 of its 2014 F-150 pickups over an issue with the electric power steering system. There haven't been any injuries or accidents due to the issue.

Ford spokesman Mike Levine told Autoblog that the "electric power-assisted steering and motor position sensor gear were incorrectly installed by a supplier," leading to the recall.

While the recall is larger on the surface, it's important to note that only 260 trucks have been delivered to customers. The remaining pickups are currently en route to dealers. The affected vehicles were manufactured between May 26 and June 19.

Owners are being asked to park their trucks until the issue has been resolved.

        Hey Bernard.... There's sarcasm there. Re read it, insert a minute sense of humor for all those GM fanboys who will pound on ford for a recall then let the irony sink in when GM has yet another recall in the wings since they've only had just one recall all this year. (That was sarcasm right there too, FYI smh)

      So, basically, this a recall for two hours of F-150 sales? Recalls are serious business, but the headline is a bit excitable.

      So we're announcing recalls for 260 vehicles now? I mean, putting 5,700 in the headline when 5,440 were never sold seems to be a bit on the idiotic side.
