Ford to recall 33,000 vehicles due to faulty seat recliners
Ford has joined the ’recall’ bandwagon after the Detroit-based auto maker recently announced the recall of over 33,000 cars because the cars, which affect a number of 2010 Ford Fusion, Explorer, and Explorer SportTrac units, apparently suffer from a faulty front seat recliner.
Yes, Ford is recalling these cars because they have problems reclining. Safety first, right people?
Apparently, the problem was serious enough that Ford, along with the NHTSA, deemed it as a must-fix. Their fear was that the seat back and head restraint could move towards the rear of the car if that car was involved in a crash. Obviously, this could potentially cause injuries to both the driver and the person seated behind.
So, if you have any of the aforementioned models, you might want to give Ford a ring so they can fix the problem for free.
