The ‘hits’ keep coming

Ford Motor Company is taking another hit in the recall department this week:

WASHINGTON — Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 100,000 2008 F-Series trucks because the front driver’s seat does not conform with federal standards.

Ford says the weld connecting a bracket and the driver’s front seat back could crack on a small number of vehicles. As a result, the vehicles do not comply with federal rules for seat back strength.

The recall covers F-250 through F-550 Super Duty trucks. More than 87,000 of the trucks are in the United States and 14,000 are in Canada.

Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood said Thursday that no injuries have been reported. Ford discovered the issue after receiving reports of the weld cracking.

Owners will be notified of the recall later in March. For more information, owners can call Ford at (800) 392-3673.
