Recall Alert : 2013-2016 Fusion/Lincoln MKZ

RECALL Subject : Front Seat Belts May Not Restrain Occupants

Report Receipt Date: DEC 05, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V875000
Component(s): SEAT BELTS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 603,392


Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company

SUMMARY:

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Ford Fusion vehicles manufactured November 2, 2012, to July 31, 2014, and 2013-2015 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured November 14, 2012, to July 31, 2014. In the event of a crash, heat from the deployment of a seat belt pretensioner may cause a front seat belt anchor cable to fail.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the driver or front passenger seatbelt cables cannot properly restrain the front seat occupants, they would be at an increased risk of injury.
REMEDY:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will apply a protective coating to the seat belt cable, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Owners will be notified of the safety issue beginning on January 20, 2017. Remedy parts are expected to be available by the second quarter of 2017, and at that time, owners will be mailed a second notice. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S42.
