Ford Motor Company is issuing safety recalls for 2015-2016 Ford Transit vans and 2016 Ford F-150 trucks.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to these issues.
A total of 51,470 2015-2016 Ford Transit vans in North America are being recalled for a potential issue with rear seat belt buckles.
The rear seat belt buckles are being damaged when heavy objects are placed on top of them, which could cause the buckle not to latch completely, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Affected vehicles include certain 2015-2016 Ford Transit vans built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant from Feb. 13, 2014 through Jan. 13, 2016.
The recall effects 48,990 Transit vans in the United States and federalized territories, 1,781 in Canada and 699 in Mexico.
Dealers will either inspect and repair, or replace the seat belt buckles as necessary, at no cost to the customer.
Ford’s safety recall for certain 2016 Ford F-150 trucks in North America applies to a multi-contour seat issue.
If the multi-contour front passenger seat massage function is turned on and an adult is in that seat, the occupant classification system may incorrectly classify the adult as a child, suppressing the front passenger airbag and increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
The recall effects 3,683 2016 Ford F-150 trucks equipped with multi-contour seats.
Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford F-150 trucks built at the Dearborn Truck Plant from April 27, 2015 through Nov. 22, 2015. The recall effects 2,894 F-150s in the U.S. and federalized territories, 286 in Canada and 503 in Mexico.
Dealers will update the occupant classification system module software, at no cost to the customer.
