2017 Ford F-150 and Super Duty: Recall Alert

2017 Ford F150
By Jen Burklow

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 500 model-year 2017 Ford F-150 pickup trucks built at Michigan's Dearborn Truck Plant Nov. 2-3, 2016, and Missouri's Kansas City Assembly Plant Nov. 4-7, 2016; and model-year 2017 Super Duty pickups built at the Kentucky Truck Plant Nov. 2, 2016, to June 4, 2017, and the Ohio Assembly Plant Nov. 7-21, 2016

The Problem: Insufficient weld penetration on the seat belt buckle attachment bracket on the manual front passenger seat may not properly restrain the passenger in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Ford said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the front passenger manual seat track for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more information.

Seat belts? Back in my day we didn't even have seat belts and that's the way it was and we liked it. We loved it.

This key issue is still GM's inventory. GM's swelling inventories despite huge incentives and some production cutbacks had many expecting further shutdowns and further shutdowns have come to fruition.

Yup. Massive overstocks are still there, even more widespread extended plant idling are here and league leading incentives all are signs of a well-honed strategy going exactly to plan.

Gonna be a lean few upcoming quarters. And its gonna be a busy spin time for papa.

Anybody that doesn't wear a seat belt is an idiot.

@Jeff S Ford is shutting down plants also, and giving a good amount of incentives...

@Jim,
100% agree. Been to so many accidents were it comes down to if you are buckled in you live, if not you die .
There are always the crazy what-if scenarios but I have never seen one personally.
Buckle up because it keeps me up at night when I have to deal with DOA.

Katie bar the door!

Great job FORD for being proactive and responsible. Unlike others who change a part number, trying to cover tracks or others who have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the recall.

@Tyler

This is posted by someone who used Jeff's ID but is NOT the real Jeff S. Evidently it's someone who can't bear to accurately ID himself. Psychiatrist would have a field day with that guy.

Great job Ford, dont ever do what GM did with the key issues.

different GM. The new GM has been in business long enough for a very smart guy like you to know the difference. Evidently it's difficult for you to face facts.

This week, investors are expecting leaked info about GM's 3rd Quarter performance to push GM to an all new high at around $41 per share. Meanwhile, back in Dearborn Ford stock AKA Bill Ford's personal retirement plan, is bumping along near its 5 year lows. Must be really depressing for a Ford b*tch like you to accept.

@papa jim--That was my post.

@the FAKE Jeff S

I understand. You are NOT the real Jeff S. I've known him for a long time and you ain't my buddy Jeff.

You're a faker. Probably from Australia.

@papa jim-- You are not my buddy. I don't know you and don't want to know you. I don't need friends like you.

@the Fake jeff s

you need to remember to use the same handle every time. You look like an idiot.

@the Fake papajim

That was not my post.

@papa, you confuse yourself with all the different names you use,
Not the same GM, as they are still behind Ford, years behind, still not first, by 40 years now, sounds like same old to me.

Were you looking in the mirror like I told you too? You sound like the type that listen to everyone that is in front of you, I bet you did listen to me. One day you will awake from your coma and realize that you need to be a better person, the only way is to look in the mirror for all your problems.

@Nitro, I get it, I am old, and in a home. I am sorry. Please excuse that I have no education and no experience with other vehicles than GM. I'm not sure what stocks do actually, but someone told me GM stocks are up, so i believe it. I will source WIKI for everything, and show you.

Thanks papa, your well on your way.....

F - flawed
O - or
R - recalled
D - daily

More Ford cheap china trash.

@Nitro

Yes, you are a jerk. You use other people's names on the PUTC site. Which makes you an A-hole.

You pretend to be other people. Which makes you a real 3 dollar bill. Good luck with that.

You are a bigger jerk.

papajim should not be allowed to post on recall posts.

Jim....if u don't like doa change your profession, pretty obvious fix

Great job FORD for being proactive and responsible. Unlike others who change a part number, trying to cover tracks or others who have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the recall.

You mean like the time Ford tried to do a regional recall for door latches that could fail? Then the Feds had to brow beat them into doing a national recall. Apparently Ford thinks their customers never drive to other parts of the country.

Or how about all the F-150's equipped with an Ecoboost that have sudden loss of brakes? You know, the one that Ford tried to ignore until the Feds came knocking. Then suddenly a recall was issued, but only for 2013-2014 truck, even though the identical master cylinder and brake booster are using on 2015+ trucks -- they're still failing without warning by the way.

Oh by the way, out of 18 auto manufacturers, FORD is ranked dead LAST in voluntary recalls. Over the last 30 years, Ford was FORCED to issue a recall 70.4% of the time. Ford, where safety is job none!
