According to a statement, in affected vehicles, a front seat belt pretensioner could generate parks and possibly ignite a fire. The affected vehicles were built in Ford’s Kentucky truck plant between Oct. 8, 2015 and Oct. 29, 2019. Ford said it was aware of one report of a fire-related to this condition in the United States. The recall impacts 490,574 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 56,112 in Canada, and 852 in Mexico.
