Ford recalls 33,256 vehicles

Ford announced today it will recall 33,256 of 2010 Ford Fusion, 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Track, 2010 Mercury Milan and 2010 Mercury Mountaineer, manufactured in between December 15, 2009 and February 3, 2010, to fix an issue with the front seat manual recliners.

The seatback and head restraint may move rearward, increasing the risk of an injury to the occupants, in case of an accident.

The recall will begin on or before April 30 and the manual recliners will be replaced with no extra cost for the owner.

Just to remember, Ford made a recall in February too, this year, of the hybrid versions of the two vehicles, to fix a brake malfunction.

Ford claims the defect does not affect the braking abilities and the vehicle is still able to come to a halt.
