Vehicles Affected: More than 113,000 model-year 2014 Ford Flex SUVs manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Ontario, 2014 F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan, 2014 F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, and 2009-2014 F-150 pickup trucks serviced with a suspect seat track assembly between Feb. 17 and Oct. 31.
The Problem: A passenger seat sensing issue could result in non-deployment of the passenger-side airbag in certain frontal crashes if an adult is in the passenger seat, increasing the risk of an injury. Ford said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
The Fix: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will widen the gap between the manual seat frame seat track assembly, then calibrate the seat occupant classification system for free. The automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more info.
