Ford Motor has issued a recall on 680,000 midsize sedans due to faulty anchor pretensioners that can cause front seat belts to not hold people in the event of a crash. The seat belt anchor pretensioners can overheat, which can cause the cables to snap and break. At least two accidents with injuries have been reported.
The recall includes 2013 through 2016 Ford Fusion models, as well as 2015 through 2016 Ford Mondeo models and 2013 through 2015 Lincoln MKZ models.
Dealers will begin notifying owners if their vehicle is included in the recall. Dealers will then inject insulation into the faulty pretensioners to assist in protecting the cables from overheating. The repairs will be at no cost to owners.
