2018 Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator: Recall Alert

2018 lincoln navigator

approximately 35,000 model-year 2018 ford expedition and lincoln navigator suvs with second-row center bench seats that may be missing j-channel reinforcement brackets in the seat track assembly

the problem: a seat track missing one or both j-channel reinforcement brackets may not properly restrain the seat assembly during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

the fix: dealers will inspect the seats to determine if both j-channel brackets are installed. if one or both brackets are missing, dealers will replace the center seat frame assembly at no charge to customers. until the vehicle can be serviced for this concern, owners should move the seat back to its farthest position away from the front of the vehicle.

lincoln manufacturer ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

what owners should do: ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
