The problem is faulty door handles that could lead to the doors flying open in a crash.</p><p>The <a href="http://www.ford.com/trucks/f150/">F-150</a> is the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. Most of the recalled trucks were made in the 2009 and 2010 model years.</p><p><a href="http://www.nhtsa.gov/">The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration</a> says a spring in the interior door handle can break, which means the door may not latch properly. So the door could potentially fling open if the truck is hit on the side.</p><p>Ford says there have been no crashes or injuries tied to the problem. Ford is also dealing with a large and expensive recall of nearly 600-000 older model Windstar minivans. That one is for corrosion in the axles that could cause the axles to break.
