Ford recalls over 500,000 vehicles

DEARBORN, Mich. – There’s an important recall involving ford trucks and SUVs. Ford is recalling more than 550,000 trucks and SUVs in North America.

At issue: seat backs that may not properly restrain passengers in a crash.

The recall covers certain F-150 pickups from model years 2018 through 2020. Also included in the recall: Super Duty trucks from model years 2019 and 2020, certain Explorers from 2018, 2019 and 2020, as well as 2019 and 2020 Expeditions and some Lincoln Aviators from model year 2020.

All affected models have manual driver or front passenger seat-back recliner mechanisms.

Ford says the trucks may not have a component needed for seat strength, increasing the potential for injury in a crash.

The automaker says it isn’t aware of any crashes or injuries.

Dealerships will inspect seat structures and replace them if needed.

Owners are expected to be notified starting in early October.
