Over 26K Ford vehicles with faulty seatbelts recalled in the US
American auto manufacturer Ford Motor Co. issued a recall in August to some 26,400 trucks to repair a seatbelt problem that may increase injury risk in accidents, an article of the Detroit News reported.
Reports said the seatbelts of some Ford F-750 and F-650 trucks may fail to lock in proper position. The possibly faulty seatbelts are located in the front passengers’ seat and at the center seat of the vehicles. Vehicle occupants are at a higher risk of sustaining injuries if the problem occurs in an event of a crash, according to a Ford statement. No one was reportedly injured before Ford issued the recall. The automaker also said that they are still developing ways to address the seatbelt problems of the affected vehicles.
