Ford Expected To Issue Recall On 2,204 Potentially Affected Units In June

Ford Motor Company is expected to begin notifying owners of certain model vehicles due to an increased risk of injury during a crash. The seat frames may have inadequate welds that can cause them to fail during impact. Considering that you can look down Central Avenue, at any given time, and see a variety of different Ford cars, trucks, and SUV’s, this information is relevant to our community. Affected 2017 models include…

  • Ford Explorer

  • F-150

  • F-250

  • F-350

  • F-450

  • F-550

All of the units came equipped with a manual driver's seat back recliner mechanism, and in the event of a crash, these seats are likely not to restrain you properly. Head, neck, and a variety of other injuries could occur, as well as death in some cases. Ford is supposed to contact owners directly about the problem. Dealers will inspect the back seat frame and replace it as necessary, free of charge. Owners of these vehicles can also contact the company’s customer service representatives and reference the recall number of 17C08 for accurate and precise information.
