¿Qué medidas adoptarán Ford y su distribuidor? Las piezas para reparar su vehículo ya se encuentran disponible. Ford Motor Company ha autorizado a su distribuidor a inspeccionar y, si fuera necesario, a reemplazar el ensamble del cinturón de seguridad del conductor y/o del pasajero delantero, sin costo alguno (piezas y mano de obra).

Sin embargo, debido a los requisitos de planificación de servicio, es posible que su distribuidor tarde un poco más. Además, se realizará una inspección del vehículo para determinar si se deben solicitar piezas.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY ISSUES TWO SAFETY RECALLS IN NORTH AMERICA

May 29, 2020 | DEARBORN, Mich.

DEARBORN, Mich., May 29, 2020Ford Motor Company is issuing two safety recalls in North America. Details are as follows:

 

Select 2016-17 Ford Transit Connect vehicles

In affected vehicles, the driver and/or front passenger seat belt pretensioners may not deploy in a crash event in which the front seat belt pretensioners are activated. Even with the primary seat belt locking function operating properly, if the front seat belt pretensioner fails to deploy during a crash, it may increase the risk of injury to a front occupant.

Ford is not aware of any such non-deployments or injuries associated with this condition. This action affects 1,616 vehicles in the United States and 131 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Valencia Assembly Plant, July 17-31, 2016.

Dealers will inspect the driver and front passenger seat belt assemblies and replace those that were produced during the suspect date range. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S25.

 

Select 2020 Ford Mustang vehicles

Affected vehicles are equipped with an image processing module A – a forward-looking camera – that is misaligned to the vehicle. As a result of this misalignment, the camera may not function as intended. An incorrect forward-looking camera alignment calibration may cause features to have degraded functionality during vehicle operation. Those features include Pre-Collision Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping System, Driver Alert and Auto High-Beam Control. The Pre-Collision Assist system’s effectiveness in detecting a frontal collision may be compromised, increasing the risk of an accident.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition. This action affects 24 vehicles in the United States and one in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Feb. 10-11, 2020.

Dealers will reconfigure the forward-looking camera by aligning the Lane Departure Warning system camera. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S26.

Subject:  Ford Motor Company (Ford) Recall No. 20S25 – Certain 2016-2017 model year Ford Transit Connect vehicles – Front Seat Belt Pretensioner

 

Chronology

August – December 2019

On August 29, 2019, NHTSA contacted Ford regarding Ford’s response to an Autoliv recall from 2016.  Autoliv filed a defect report with NHTSA (16E-095) on December 7, 2016 for certain AI2 initiators manufactured June 16, 2016, to November 4, 2016. The Autoliv initiators could contain an improper generant mix ratio that may prevent air bag and/or seat belt pretensioner deployment in a crash of sufficient severity. Autoliv had identified six suspect lots of initiators that had low mass readings and one of these lots was used for seatbelt pretensioners installed in Transit Connect vehicles.  Ford’s investigation at the time of 16E-095 had concluded there was no unreasonable safety risk associated with the pretensioner concern in the Transit Connect.  Further, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) analysis demonstrated that the Connect would continue to meet FMVSS 208/214 regulatory requirements without seatbelt pretensioning.  Ford reviewed its assessment with NHTSA when the agency contacted Ford in February 2017 regarding Autoliv’s defect declaration.

In response to NHTSA’s August 2019 contact, Ford reviewed its prior assessment with the agency.  Ford further shared its F/CMVSS 208 Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) analyses conducted to evaluate the effect of the front seatbelt pretensioner non-deployment on high speed frontal crash impacts.

 

January-April 2020

Through ongoing dialogue with the agency, Ford reaffirmed its view that this subject did not present an unreasonable safety risk in Transit Connect vehicles.  First, Ford is not aware of any non-deployments or injury allegations associated with this subject. Second, even if there was a non-deployment of the front seatbelt pretensioner in these vehicles, the vehicle would still meet regulatory requirements and maintain an overall frontal four-star NCAP rating.  Ford further noted the low supplier-predicted fallout rate (0.06%) for this issue.  Ford and the agency continued to discuss whether a safety recall was warranted for this population of vehicles.

On May 19, 2020, Ford’s Field Review Committee reviewed the concern and approved a field action.
