Ford Recalls 26,000 Pick-up Trucks For Faulty Seat Belts

Ford is recalling 26,000 F-650 and F-750 pick up trucks.

The Ford Motor Company is recalling about 26,000 trucks. Officials say the front passenger and center seat belts may not be correctly anchored to the vehicle.

The recall names the F-650 and F-750 pickup trucks from model years 2011, 2013, and 2015. Todd Lassa is the Detroit Bureau Chief at Automobile Magazine. He says Ford could face some difficulty executing the recall.

“Because these are commercial trucks they are configured in many different ways,” Lassa says. “That is the customer, being a business or an industry of some sort, has different needs and different configurations and, therefore, different seatbelt configurations. So Ford is still trying to figure out how exactly how it’s going to tackle that particular recall.”

Lassa says there have not been any reports of crashes or injuries caused by the faulty seat belts.
