Class Action Lawsuit: Ford Pickup Tailgates Fly Open While Driving | MotorBiscuit

A class-action lawsuit filed last week alleges that Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty power tailgates fly open while driving. This is after a 2018 NHTSA investigation into the issue. Based on that Ford was ordered to recall the trucks at the end of 2019. It affects Super Duty pickups made between 2017-2019.

That recall took in over 231,000 of the trucks according to carcomplaints. At the time Ford said, “Water entering the electrical wiring system may cause a short circuit resulting in the unintended switch activation and release of the tailgate latches. This could cause unintended opening of the tailgate either when the vehicle is not moving or is in motion.”
