Ford Recalls For Seats That May Detach In Crash
Another week another recall. It seems food has been recalled a lot lately but now it could be your vehicle!
According to USA Today, "Ford is recalling more than 550,000 trucks and SUVs in North America because seat backs may not properly restrain people in a crash."
The recall covers certain vehicles between 2018-2020 including F-150 pickups, 2019/2020 Super Duty trucks, 2018/2019 Explorer and Expedition SUVs. All have a manual driver or front passenger seat-back recliner mechanisms. Some 2020 Explorers and Lincoln Aviator SUVs with rear seats with manual seat-back mechanisms are included as well.
Ford says, "the trucks may not have a third pawl needed for seat strength, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. Ford says it doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries."
Dealers will inspect seat structures and replace them if needed. Most are expected to pass. Owners will be notified starting Oct. 7.
