When it comes to the words that automakers pretty much never want to hear or say, I would think that “recall” would be up near the top of the list. There’s nothing that deflates a bottom line more than repairing cars that have already been sold and getting absolutely no return on the money spent in addition to the impact that your brand could be taking when people learn about the shortcomings in your production.
In a game where competition is high, you have to be on your game when it comes to designing a product that people are going to want to buy repeatedly and it isn’t going to come back through your doors at the end of the day for you to start wrenching on again.
Recently, Ford announced that thousands of their vehicles in the 2018 lineup have been recalled for safety issues that are related to the mechanism that holds the rear seats in place. In a variety of examples of the 2018 Lincoln Navigator and Ford Expedition with second-row bench seats, they didn’t receive the J-channel reinforcement bracket which is essential to the integrity of the seat bracket. Hopefully, word will get out to the owners of all of these vehicles before the safety concern becomes one that escalates to injury. You could see how, if left unresolved, this might be a cause for concern as riders will go flying in a crash situation.
Check out the video below that gives you just a little bit more information on what can be expected from this recall, thanks to the folks over at ABC who were able to get the inside scoop, and tell you if you may be affected by this concern. If affected by this issue, it’s definitely something that we would recommend getting mended as soon as you possibly can!
