Ford Recalls 50k Transit Vans to Fix Rear Seatbelt Buckles
  • About 50,000 Ford Transit vans recalled due to seatbelt buckle issue!

Ford has announced a heavy object in the 2015-16 vans could damage the seatbelt buckle.

Ford Motors just issued a new recall for the 2015-16 Transit vans. The Ford Transit vans were built between February 13, 2014, and January 13, 2016. Ford will be recalling a total of 48,990 of the Transit vans over the issue.

According to Ford, there is an issue with the rear passenger seatbelt buckles. In the Press Release Ford explained a heavy object could damage the rear seatbelt buckle.

The damage could prevent the seatbelt buckle from holding the belt in place. The issue of an unlatched seat belt increases the risk of injury to the occupant in the event of a crash.

Ford has also announced there have been no injuries or deaths related to the issue. But they are still recalling the vans to ensure safety. 

According to the recall details Ford will either replace or modify the necessary components. The fixing depends upon the location of the seatbelt buckle in the vehicle.

Once the replacement parts are available Ford will take action. Ford has also shared anyone owning a Ford Transit van can expect to hear from their dealer soon.

The Press Release states owners are expected to hear from their dealers till 14th of March 2016. The replacement of parts by Ford dealers will occur free of charge. Owners will receive a second notification from ford when the parts will become available.
