DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford is issuing a recall of its Super Duty SuperCrew vehicles due to an interior fire risk if the trucks are involved in a crash.
In affected vehicles, the front seat belt pretensioner that deploys during a crash can generate excessive sparks, which could ignite the carpet or carpet insulation in the area of the B-pillar and spread within the vehicle, Ford said in its recall notice.
One report in the U.S. of a fire related to this condition has been reported, Ford said. The company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
