Ford is recalling more than 200,000 pickup trucks and SUVs in North America because front seat cushions can come loose and fail to properly hold people in a crash. The recall covers the 2016 F-150 and Explorer vehicles equipped with front power seats that were manufactured between January 22, 2016 and April 19, 2016.
The company says a bolt in the power seat adjuster can come loose or fall out. If that happens, the seat cushion can move too far. Dealers will check the bolts, and if they pass inspection, mechanics will clean and reinstall them with an adhesive to keep them secured. If the bolt fails inspection, dealers will follow the same procedure until parts for a final repair are available.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective seat cushion in a Ford vehicle, you may have a potential claim for damages against the manufacturer. The auto recall attorneys at the Ammons Law Firm have the legal resources and experience to assist you. Call 713-523-1606.
