Recall Alert: 2016 Ford F-150 & 2016 Ford Explorer
Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 7,000 2016 Ford F-150 and 2016 Ford Explorer vehicles. In certain vehicles, it is possible the driver seat back may have been improperly welded and may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Feb. 20, 2016 through Feb. 25, 2016, and Kansas City Assembly Plant, Feb. 17, 2016 through Feb. 24, 2016; and 2016 Ford Explorer vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Feb. 17, 2016 through March 7, 2016. There are 6,661 vehicles affected including 5,280 in the United States and federalized territories, 1,199 in Canada and 132 in Mexico.
Dealers will inspect and replace, if needed, the driver seat backrest frame at no cost to the customer.
