Ford recall winston salem

For the second time in a month, Ford is recalling more than 550,000 trucks and SUVs in North America. This recall, which affects the brand-new 2020 Explorer and 2020 Lincoln Aviator, 2018-2020 Ford F-150s, 2019-2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks, 2018-2019 Ford Explorers, and 2019-2020 Ford Expeditions, pertains to potentially faulty seat-back reclining mechanisms. In total, the recall touches 550,186 vehicles.

A mechanical part meant for relaxation and comfort could be the culprit. Ford says potentially affected vehicles might be missing the "third pawl required for seat-back strength" in the reclining mechanisms on certain seats. Because of this, the seats might not properly keep a person in place during the event of a crash or otherwise.

Ford says it doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries and they expect most vehicles will not need repair. However, dealers will inspect the seat structures out of precaution. If fault is found, dealers will replace the seat structure altogether. For this recall, Ford's reference number is 19C07. Contact your local Ford dealer for more information.

Owners will be notified starting October 7.
