  • Ford recalls medium duty trucks due to safety issue in seat belts!

More than 26,000 of the F-650 and F-750 Models have been recalled by the automaker.

Another automaker has recalled thousands of their vehicles due to safety issues. The automaker in question this time around is Ford motors. Ford has recalled more than 26,000 of its medium duty trucks. 

The reason for the recall is a safety issue in the seat belt of the vehicle. The models affected by the recall are the F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks. The models of the truck range from the year 2011, 2013 to 2015. 

The trucks were mostly produced at the Escobedo Assembly Plant in Mexico. The production of the trucks had started from the 14th of February. All the trucks since then until the 28th of April 2015 by Ford have been recalled. 

The recall was carried out due to the passenger and center seat belts. The position of the passenger and the center seat belts is supposedly not anchored correctly. The relative position of the seat belts and the seats are not proper. 

The position increases the risk of injury if there is a crash. Ford has stated so far there have been no incidents reported due to the seat belt problem. A number of service procedures are being developed to improve the seat belt position. So there could be an easy and effective fix. 

Ford has announced they will notify owners on what they are supposed to do. Ford will start mailing their customers on the 21st of September. 

The customers will then have to contact their local dealers. Ford has also set up a "Safety Recall" page at Customers can find out if their vehicle is at risk at the site by entering their VIN.
