Vehicles Affected: Ford is recalling approximately 483,300 vehicles that include model-year 2018-20 F-150 pickup trucks and model-year 2019-20 Super Duty F-250 and F-350 pickups all equipped with manual front occupant seatback recliners

The Problem: The third pawl required for seatback strength may be missing, reducing the strength of the seat and not adequately restraining an occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the seat structure. Ford said most vehicles are expected to pass the inspection and not require repair, but if a repair is required, the dealer will replace the seat structure for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
