Ford Motor Company is recalling 5,280 model year 2016 Ford Explorers and F-150s equipped with a manual recline driver's seat.
The seat back frame may have insufficient welds which may not meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) numbers 202, "Head Restraints" and 207, "Seating Systems."
The seat back may not restrain the occupant adequately during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the seat back frame, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on August 15, 2016.
Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 16C11.
