Ford is recalling approximately 700 model-year 2017 Ford Focus cars in the US. They were built from June 7 to June 12, 2017, at the automaker’s Michigan Assembly Plant.
They’re being recalled due to a second-row seatback frame issue. An inadequate weld penetration between the outboard pivot bracket and the pivot nut joint may have reduced strength, increasing the risk of an injury in a crash. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue.
Dealers will inspect and replace the second-row left-side seatback frame for free if an inadequate weld is discovered.
