Ford to recall vehicles with potentially faulty seat belts

Over 680,000 Ford vehicles are under recall in the United States, Mexico, and Canada due to a seat belt issue that could cause harm to vehicle occupants, a report of USA Today stated on December 2.

Specifically, the Michigan-based manufacturer was notified of two incidents involving the recalled vehicles that resulted in personal injuries. The Ford’s Lincoln MKZ, Mondeo, and Fusion may have seat belts that could break during accidents. Ford confirmed in a statement that the seat belt issue could cause additional injuries during a crash. The seat belts of the vehicles could fail due to cable pretensioners that may deteriorate over time by overheating. Ford dealers will address the issue by reinforcing the insulation of the cables.

Thousands of Toyota Highlander and Highlander hybrids recalled

At least 50,000 of the newest model of Toyota Highlander and its hybrid version are being recalled by the automaker due to a software issue in the air bag control unit, Auto World News reported on June 4.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that bigger passengers occupying the front seat are at higher risk of suffering from injuries in a car crash if the airbag software failed to identify the passenger’s weight. The automaker stated that they already notified their dealers to temporarily avoid selling the affected vehicles until they fixed them. Toyota will address the problem by updating the faulty airbag software at no cost.
