Ford Recalls Trucks and SUVs due to Dangerous Seat Defect.
Ford has issued a recall on 483,325 trucks and SUVs due to a defect in the seats.
Ford says, “the issue is a missing pawl in the seatback, which keeps the seat from reclining. In case of a crash, the seatbacks may not adequately restrain an occupant.”
The recall affects certain Ford F-150 and Super Duty pickups, Explorer, Expedition, and Lincoln Aviator model years 2018 through 2020.
Ford says affected consumers can bring their vehicles to dealerships where mechanics will replace the seat structure free of charge.
Ford says there have been no accidents or injuries associated with the recalled seats.
Owners can visit the recall page of Ford’s owner website to see if their vehicle is involved in the recall.
