Over 108,000 Ford cars are being recalled in North America due to seat belts that won’t hold people in the event of a car crash.
Covered in the recall are some Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ models dating back to 2015 model year cars built between Aug. 1, 2014 and Jan. 30, 2015. Ford says that the front seat belt cables can lose strength from heat building up and they may not restrain passengers.
From the problem, Ford says, one injury has taken place. A protective coating put on the seatbelts should help to fix the problem and owners of these Ford models will be notified about the problem in September. The fix is free of charge.
