Additional information:

Among the thirty-nine (39) recalls the NHTSA announced this July comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 19,299 model year 2016-2018 Lincoln MKX and 2019-2020 Lincoln Nautilus vehicles equipped with 16-way electric tilt seats marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Seats, Air Bags, Electrical System – Damaged Wiring may cause Air Bag Malfunction

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V414000 reports that the Seat Cushion Frame Edge may contact the Wire Harness when the seat occupant uses the tilt function of the seat, potentially damaging one or more wires within the Harness, which can result in either inadvertent deployment of the Air Bag or non-deployment of the Air Bag in the event of a crash.

According to the NHTSA, an Air Bag that deploys inadvertently increases the risk of a crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results. An Air Bag that does not deploy in the event of a crash increases the risk of injury.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will install protective flocking tape onto the exposed edge of the 16-way seat cushion frames, and inspect the wire harness for damage, and repair or replace it as needed, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin August 10, 2020.

Owners may contact Ford/Lincoln Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 20S37.
