What are the defects?

The rear folding seatback latch spring may break causing the latch mechanism to fail, potentially preventing the rear seatback from locking into the upright position.

What are the hazards?

This may increase the risk of injury to rear seat occupants in the event of a collision.

What should consumers do?

Ford will write to owners of all affected vehicles asking them to present their vehicle to have the repair completed, free of charge.

Until the safety recall repair is completed, the rear seat should not be occupied by passengers unless you have first confirmed that the rear seatback is secure and fully engaged. You can confirm this by gripping the top of the seatback at the centre and pulling firmly towards the front of the vehicle. If the seatback moves forward, it is not fully engaged and the seat should not be occupied. Refer to the rear seat section in your owner’s handbook for further details.

For further information, contact Ford's Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672.
