2017 Ford F-150 recalled to fix software glitch

This morning, Ford issued a safety recall for the 2017 Ford F-150 pickup. According to the automaker, a software glitch could cause the truck's instrument cluster to malfunction under certain conditions. 

The long, international nightmare know as the Takata recall fiasco is far from over, and Takata itself is largely to blame for the delay.

Ford's dealership network will soon begin selling parts for vehicles made by the Blue Oval brand's direct rivals.
