Vehicles Affected: 25 model-year 2017 Ford Fusion sedans manufactured between Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, 2016

The Fix: Dealers will replace the left-hand rear seatback frame for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford will begin notifying owners on Jan. 9. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to for more info.
