2017 Ford Explorer: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 312,000 model-year 2017 Ford Explorer SUVs equipped with power front seats

The Problem: The seat frames may have improperly coined edges, increasing the risk of injury when someone reaches between the power front seat and center console.

The Fix: Dealers will install flocked tape to the exposed edge and tab on the inboard side of the power-seat frames for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately provide an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Ford 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.
