Ford Motor Company recalled over 500,000 SuperCrew vehicles on Dec. 13 because of a post-crash interior fire risk.
The vehicles were created from 2015 to 2019 at Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant. Excessive sparks from the front seat-belt pretensioner may light the carpet or carpet isolation on fire in affected vehicles, according to a statement made by Ford.
There are 490,574 affected vehicles in the United States, 56,112 in Canada and 852 in Mexico. Ford recently recalled many of its vehicles because of safety problems.
