Ford is recalling certain 2014 F-150 trucks and 2014 E-Series vans to replace improperly tempered seat, setback, seatbelt and/or seatbelt buckle attaching bolts.

Affected 2014 F-150s were built at Dearborn Assembly Plant from May 9, 2014 to June 15, 2014 and at Kansas City Assembly Plant from May 10, 2014 to June 10, 2014.
