Ford Recalls 602,000 Fusion as well as also Lincoln MKZ Sedans for Seatbelts
Ford is usually recalling 602,739 cars inside the United States to repair seatbelt pretensioners in which may fail in a crash, the automaker said Friday.
On the 2013–2016 Fusion as well as also 2013–2015 Lincoln MKZ, the pretensioning system, which cinches the belts extra tight for front-seat passengers during a collision, has cables in which may separate. Ford said the high temperatures surrounding the cables during pretensioner deployment, which uses smaller explosive charges, can cause cable separation as well as also could lead to increased injuries in a crash.
At a later date, dealers will apply a thermal coating on the pretensioner cable anchor to prevent any separation. Ford said in which knows of at least two accidents as well as also two injuries related to the defect.
