Ford says that it has done its best to notify owners of the problem multiple times and NHTSA agrees that the company's efforts have been adequate. Unfortunately, many of the current owners may have bought the recalled vehicles used and thus may not even know that there's a potential problem.
The recall is the largest in the history of the automotive industry, so it should come as no surprise that there are still some loose ends to be tied up. Owners can search to see if there are outstanding recalls on their vehicles at the NHTSA website. If that's the case, NHTSA urges owners to take their vehicle to the dealer as soon as possible.
