What is a Ford Safety Recall Campaign?

At Germain Ford of Columbus, we operate a certified Ford service department that provides Ford recall service quickly, conveniently, and at no charge to our customers. Safety Recall Campaigns are issued by auto manufacturers working alongside regulatory authorities to advance roadway safety. If a vehicle, vehicle component, or safety device is found to carry an undue risk, a safety recall campaign can be issued to correct the problem and reduce risk. If a Ford car, truck, van, or SUV has a safety recall issued, we invite you to receive the corrective service with us. We are conveniently located in Columbus near Dublin, Marysville, & Westerville, OH.

Ford Recall

Ford Truck and SUV Seat Recall

Ford has identified a seat mechanism that reclines the front driver and passenger seats that may have been assembled incorrectly. The risk associated with the improper assembly is that it might not function properly in the event of a collision due to insufficient strength to restrain the occupant. The faulty seat mechanism increases the risk of a passenger being injured in a crash. It is important to note that Ford has issued this safety recall without being aware of any crashes nor injuries that have actually occurred.

Ford Seat Recall Remedy

Certified Ford Dealers like Germain Ford of Columbus can inspect the seat and replace the faulty seat structure at no charge to owners. If your Ford model is included in the safety recall, simply bring your vehicle to us and we'll provide your recall service quickly, conveniently, and for no charge.

How to check and see if your vehicle has an active safety recall

 Ford sends a notification letter to the owners of the affected vehicles; however, there are other ways to check if you want to be sure. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration operates a website where all recalls in the U.S. appear. Simply plug your vehicle's 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number into the website and it will tell you if there is an active recall to address. It is also possible to search Ford's Recalls and Field Service Actions page using the 17-digit VIN. To check if your vehicle is on the recall list, search Ford's website, search NHTSA's website, receive a mailed letter from Ford, or give us a call.
