Just the Facts:
Ford is recalling 48,960 vehicles, including the 2013-’14 Ford Fusion, to replace seatback frames that do not comply with a federal standard, Ford told Edmunds on Monday.The recall also involves the 2013-’14 Lincoln MKZ, Ford Escape and C-Max.

“No accidents or injuries have been attributed to this condition,” wrote Kelli Felker, a Ford spokeswoman, in an e-mailed message.

“No accidents or injuries have been attributed to this condition,” wrote Kelli Felker, a Ford spokeswoman, in an e-mailed message.

Ford said certain front driver and passenger seatback assemblies may have been produced with “sub-standard welds joining the seatback recliner mechanism to the seatback frame.”

Substandard seatback frames do not comply with a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standard.

The problem could potentially increase “the risk of injury in certain collisions,” Ford said.
No information about the recall has been posted on the NHTSA Web site. The agency oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

The recall involves the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ built at the Hermosillo Assembly plant from August 15, 2012 through September 10, 2013; the Ford Escape built at the Louisville Assembly Plant from June 5, 2012 through August 12, 2013 and the Ford C-Max built at the Michigan Assembly plant from July 23, 2012 through May 28, 2013.

Ford dealers will replace the seatback frames on the affected vehicles.

A specific date for the recall has not been set.

Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the affected vehicles, get it into your dealership for repairs once you receive your recall notice. But if you have a concern in the meantime, contact your dealer now.
