Ford says 680,000 of its late-model vehicles may have defective seat belts and has urged owners to bring them in for repair. At least two injuries have been linked to the defect, which involves seat belt anchor pretensioners that can overheat and cause the cable to snap during deployment in a crash. Crashes involving deaths or serious injury should be investigated for potential links to defective safety features or tires.


Ford models affected by the seat belt recall are:

  • Ford Fusion 2013-2016
  • Lincoln MKZ 2013-2015
  • Ford Mondeo 2015-2016

Ford said it would notify vehicle owners and repair the affected vehicles free of charge. However, if you bought one of these vehicles used, you may not get an official notification, but you still qualify for a free repair.
