Ford Recalls 16,430 F-150 Trucks over Improper Seatbelt Installation. Owners are being asked to refrain from driving their newly made 2021 Ford model due to safety concerns regarding seatbelt efficiency. The webbing of the seatbelt may have been incorrectly installed through a rubber trim sleeve instead of an anchor as it should have been. This manufacturer issue can increase the chances of serious injuries if the driver is not able to be properly restrained. Ford is asking owners of the F-150 to perform inspections of their front-row seatbelts and give customers information on that process. If you are unsure if your vehicle has been recalled, use the VIN on the Ford website or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
