Vehicles Affected: 25 model-year 2017 Ford Fusion sedans manufactured between Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, 2016
The Problem: The left rear seatback’s pivot pins may have been improperly welded. In a crash, the welds may fail and luggage could enter the passenger compartment, injuring occupants.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the left-hand rear seatback frame for free.
