Personal injury complaints spark recall on thousands of Ford vehicles
After receiving notification of accidents that resulted in personal injuries, American automaker Ford Motor Co. issued a recall covering over 680,000 vehicles in the U.S. and other countries, a December 2 article of USA Today reported.
According to reports, some models of Lincoln MKZ, Mondeo, and Fusion may have poorly made seat belts that might not properly restrain vehicle occupants in emergency situations. In the report, the manufacturer said two personal injuries resulted from accidents involving the recalled vehicles. Apparently, the seat belts could fail as a result of overheating that deteriorates the pretensioner cables. The majority of the recalled vehicles were in the U.S. and some were sold in Mexico, Canada, and in other countries. Ford dealers will notify owners of the recalled vehicles for the strengthening of the seat belt cable pretensioners.
