Ford Motor (NYSE:F) Recalling More Vehicles

The American auto industry seems to be shooting itself in the foot as numerous recalls continue to weigh on them at a time when they had an opportunity to make some inroads in market share with their competitors. Ford (NYSE:F) again has to recall vehicles.

Included in this recall are approximately 15,000 vehicles, which include 2011 Louisville-made F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 models.

Other models being recalled are 2011 Lincoln MKX cross-over vehicles and F-150 trucks.

The problem stems from body control modules from a supplier that could result in an internal electrical short which could start a fire.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said owners of the vehicles will be officially notified beginning on January 10.

Ford will replace the module at no cost to the owners.
