Ford recalls over 60,000 units of Bronco, Ranger SUVs. Here's why

Ford has issued a recall for 63,294 units of the 2022 Bronco and Ranger SUVs in the US due to an issue that could cause the windshield of these vehicles to fall out in a crash. The recall covers 39,063 units of Broncos and 24,231 units of Rangers. The windshield issue is happening because there is inadequate urethane adhesion around the glass which could lead to increased wind noise or water leaks, and the panel can even fall out in a crash.

Ford first found out about the the defect after receiving a report about a customer's Bronco, which lacked adhesive on the windshield. Then, the automaker's Critical Concern Review Group investigated the situation on April 7, and found that eight out of 65 inspected units had improper adhesion.
