Ford recalled over 100,000 F-150 pickup trucks after discovering an issue with the rear axle that may cause an increased crash risk.

The recall includes certain 2021-2023 F-150 vehicles equipped with the Trailer Tow Max Duty package and a 9.75-inch heavy duty axle with a 3/4 float axle design.

The rear axle hub bolt may fatigue and break, according to the notice, which can result in damage to the axle hub splines.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, damaged axle hub splines can result in the vehicle to roll away when the vehicle is in park without the parking brake applied, or cause a loss of drive power, both of which can increase the risk of crash.

In total, 112,965 vehicles are affected by the recall.
