— Ford Motor Company is known for its trucks, especially larger trucks for the consumer market, but now over 26,000 of those trucks need to come back to dealers for repairs. Ford says the 2011-2013 and 2015 F-650 and F-750 trucks are in violation of safety laws because of seat belt anchors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn't released specific details, but Ford says about 26,400 trucks have seat belts that might not hold occupants in a crash. The automaker says the front and center passenger seat belts might not be anchored in the correct position in the seats.
A passenger wouldn't know about the defect until the seat belts are needed in a crash but then fail in the crash.
Ford says the recalled trucks were built February 14, 2011, through April 28, 2015, and no accidents or injuries have been reported related to the seat belt anchors.
The automaker believes 25,941 trucks are in the U.S. and federalized territories, with another 417 trucks in Canada.
Ford doesn't know when the recall will begin because the trucks have different cab and seat configurations and the automaker is still trying to determine a recall remedy.
