The company will recall certain 2015-17 Ford F-150 and 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks.

Ford said the side doors of the vehicles can appear closed when not fully latched. Dealers will add water shields to side door latches to correct the problem.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue.

Shares were little changed in early US trading, changing hands at US$12.31, up 0.29%.
