Ford Recall of Certain Model Year 2011 E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 Trucks

Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—April 28, 2011.

Summary:  Ford is recalling certain model year E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 trucks for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 207, “Seating Systems.”  It may be possible that under unusually high loads such as during a crash, the driver power seat track worm gear may fracture.

Consequence:  In the event of a crash or other circumstances of severe loading, the worm gear could fail and allow the seat to shift forward or backward increasing the risk and/or severity of injuries to the driver.

Remedy:  Dealers will inspect the driver’s seat track assembly, and if necessary, replace it free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about May 2, 2011.  Owners may cotact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 866-436-7332.

Notes: Ford’s Recall Campaign Number is 11C16. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
