Ford issues recall for 108,399 cars over seat belt risk

Ford Motor Co. issued a safety recall for 108,399 vehicles in North America that could have faulty seat belts, the Michigan-based automaker said Aug. 14.

In select 2015 Ford Fusion and 2015 Lincoln MKZ cars, heat generated from the front seat belt anchor pretensioner devices — designed to pull the belt tight in an accident — could increase the seat belt cable's chance of breaking under tension, Ford said.

Seat belts that do not properly restrain the driver or front passenger can increase the risk of injury during a crash, the company said, adding that it is aware of at least one injury from this defect.

Ford said its dealers will apply a coating that protects the seat belt cable from breaking.

The safety recall affects 103,374 cars in the U.S., 4,002 cars in Canada and 1,023 vehicles in Mexico.

The 2015 Ford Fusions were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan from Aug. 1, 2014, to Jan. 30, 2015, and at Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico from Aug. 1, 2014, to Nov. 24, 2014.

The affected Lincoln MKZs were built at the Hermosillo plant from Aug. 1, 2014, to Nov. 21, 2014.
