Ford started December by issued a recall for just over 200,000 vehicles with issues related to loose front seats.
“In affected vehicles, the upper left-hand pivot bolt for the front power seat adjuster may loosen or fall out. A front seat cushion with a missing upper left-hand pivot bolt may experience increased movement in a crash and not properly restrain occupants, increasing the risk of injury.”
Ford announced the affected vehicles include:
- 2016 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Jan. 22, 2016 to April 19, 2016
- 2016 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Jan. 22, 2016 to April 19, 2016
- 2016 Ford Explorer vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Jan. 22, 2016 to April 19, 2016
This comes after The Ford recall notice for Ford Transit Vans and the 2017 and 2018 F-150. And again it has not been listed as a recall for Australian consumers so it is unknown if Australian vehicles are affected.
The latest recalls Ford have released in Australia were in November for the Ford Ranger. This recalls relate to the gearshift cable clip not being securely fastened.
Lemon Register have made some inquiries into the recalls overseas however we are yet to get a response. We will keep you posted on Ford Australia’s response to the recalls.
