Another day, another car recall involving America's second biggest automaker, Ford.

The company issued a recall that has been two years in the making, and it is expected to affect at least 1.3 million vehicles in North America, including the Unites States, Canada and Mexico.

Back in 2015, Ford's popular F-150 pickup trucks were found to have safety issues after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received multiple complaints. However, it wasn't until this week that the car maker decided to take the necessary steps to solve the problem.

According to federal law, a manufacturer must notify the NHTSA within five business days of discovering a safety problem or it will face a fine. It's unclear where Ford stands with the law at the moment, but the recall notice is the first step in this complicated process.

"We take the safety of our customers very seriously. Our decisions are driven by the data available," explained Ford spokeswoman Elizabeth Weigandt in an email to Forbes. When the data indicates a safety recall is needed, we move quickly on behalf of our customers."

So which models are affected?
