2015-'16 Ford Transit Wagon Recalled for Rear Seatbelt Buckle Problem


DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 51,470 2015-'16 Ford Transit Wagon vans in North America because of a potential problem with the rear seatbelt buckles, the automaker said on Wednesday.

"The rear seatbelt buckles are being damaged when heavy objects are placed on top of them, which could cause the buckle not to latch completely, increasing the risk of injury in a crash," Ford said in a statement.

There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

The affected Transit Wagons were built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from February 13, 2014 through January 13, 2016.

Ford dealers will inspect and repair or replace the seatbelt buckles, as necessary. The recall is expected to begin the week of March 14. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.

No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their Ford dealer.
