Additional information:

Among the nine (9) recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 482,520 model year 2018-2020 F-150 and 2019-2020 F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 Super Duty Pickup Trucks, and 2018-2019 Ford Explorer and 2019-2020 Expedition vehicles equipped with driver and/or passenger’s manual front seat back recliner mechanisms and marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Also included in this recall notification are certain 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator vehicles equipped with rear outboard seats and manual seat back recliner mechanisms marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

The recliner mechanisms in the recalled vehicles may be missing the third pawl required for seat back strength, resulting in a loose seat back. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) numbers 202, “Head Restraints” and 207, “Seating Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, a seat back with an improperly assembled recliner mechanism may have reduced strength and may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Ford will notify registered owners, and Ford and Lincoln dealers will inspect the seat structure and replace them, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 7, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s designation for this recall is 19C07.
