Ford Motor Company is recalling 108,000 model year 2015 Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs.
Increased temperatures generated during deployment of the driver or front-passenger seat belt anchor pretensioner could degrade the tensile strength of the cable below the level needed to restrain an occupant.
Seat belt assemblies that do not adequately restrain the occupant in a crash can increase the risk of injury.
Ford says it is aware of one report of injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will apply a coating to protect the cable during a pretensioner deployment.
Consumers with questions may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19S25.
