Aussie-converted Ford F-250 and F-350 recalled for steering failure

Ford F-250 and F-350 2014-2016 variants sold by Performax in Australia are being recalled because of potential steering failure.

More than 140 Ford F-250 and F-350 vehicles (2014-2016) converted to right-hand drive and sold in Australia by Performax are being recalled because of potential steering failure. According to the recall notice, some 148 F-250 and F-350s are being recalled due to a concern the tie-rod ends of the steering arms could fail if the steering is often turned while the vehicle is stationary.  Should the tie-rod end fail, the steering linkages can come loose or detached from the steering arms, massively increasing the risk of accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

The recall has already been launched, and Performax has confirmed that 148 vehicles have been impacted, with a list of the affected VINs and more details on the recall to be found here. Owners of the affected F-Trucks will receive a letter advising them to get in contact with their authorised Performax dealer or repair centre, to have the issue resolved and work carried out free of charge. Owners with concerns or questions should contact Performax International Warranty of 1800 737 367, or head to the Performax website, here: https://www.performaxint.com.au/dealers.
