Ford Motor Co. is recalling 4,532 2011 model-year E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 vans and work truck chassis because the windshield may be prone to the formation of bubbles that can hinder driver visibility, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers E-Series vehicles built from May 12, 2011, through May 26, 2011. Because of faulty manufacturing conditions, some of the windshields may form bubbles after an extended time in hot temperatures, NHTSA said.

To remedy the problem, Ford dealers will inspect the windshield and replace it if bubbles are present. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin around Jan. 27. Vehicle owners can reach Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's recall campaign number is 11C20.
