The Seat Or Seatbelt In Your Ford SUV / Truck Could Fail In A Sudden Stop Or Crash

Ford has issued a new safety campaign for certain SUVs and pickup trucks, to replace improperly tempered seat, seatback, seatbelt and/or seatbelt buckle attaching bolts.

According to the automaker, the action affects 116,796 vehicles in North America, including 94,605 in the United States and federalized territories, 20,681 in Canada, and 1,510 in Mexico.

“In the affected vehicles, if a seat, seatback or seatbelt anchor attaching bolt fractures, the structural integrity of the seat or seatbelt system’s performance may be compromised in a sudden stop or crash, increasing the risk of injury”, Ford said, adding that they are not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

The latest recall campaign refers to the 2014 F-150, made at Dearborn from May 9 to June 15, 2014, and at Kansas from May 10 to June 10, 2014, the E-Series assembled in Ohio between May 15 and June 24, 2014, the Escape built at Louisville from May 11 to June 18, 2014, and the Lincoln MKC produced at Louisville between May 11 and June 18, 2014.

Ford will contact owners of these vehicles in the near future, advising them to schedule an appointment with an authorized dealer, with technicians to replace the affected bolts at no cost to the customer. An exact notification schedule has yet to be provided.
