WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Ford is recalling 33,000 of its 2010 midsize vehicles and SUVs after finding a problem with the front seat recliners that could increase the risk of injury during a crash.
The recall includes some versions of the 2010 Ford Fusion, Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac and 2010 Mercury Milan and Mountaineer with front seat manual recliners, all built between mid-December and early February.
The company found the gears could malfunction, leading to the seat back and head restraint moving toward the rear of the vehicle during a crash. Ford says it has received no reports of injuries or accidents in connection with this problem.
Dealers will replace the manual seat recliners free of charge and consumers can contact Ford at 866-436-7332.
