Ford Recalls 2 Million F-150 Pick Up Trucks

Faulty seat belts can spark fires

Ford Motor Company has issued a recall of approximately 2 million 2015-2018 F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab pickup trucks. The recall deals with the driver and front passenger seatbelt pretensioners.
According to a Ford investigation, the company found some front seatbelt pretensioners can generate excessive sparks when deployed. Gases exhausted in the lower portion of the B-pillar can ignite components inside the vehicle, such as carpeting, causing the truck to catch fire.
So far there have been 17 reports logged in the United States and Canada. Ford says it has not received reports of injuries from the fires.
Affected vehicles in the recall include 2015-2018 Ford F-150 trucks built at the Dearborn, Michigan, assembly plant from March 12, 2014, to August 23, 2018, as well as 2015-2018 F-150 trucks built at the Kansas City, Missouri, assembly plant from August 20, 2014, to August 23, 2018.
Vehicle owners are asked to contact their local Ford dealer to have the seatbelt pretensioner replaced free of charge.
